Chocolate Date Shake - It's All About That Base



Confession time: I ran out of honey. ::GASP:: I know, it's my mainstay. But, things are crazy. I was inspired to use a bulk bag of dates that had been in my pantry for awhile. Don't worry, I checked the date (I'm a freak about checking dates, even on dates, HAHAH!).


They were kind of hard, so I put a handful of them in a large water glass and covered them with filtered water. That's Step 1. Oh, and the dates were really firm, because it was before I had date night!


THE BASE:

  • Organic dates soaked in water to taste (5-8 dates, depending on variety), ideally for 4+ hours. Sometimes I start the soaking process overnight or do it in the morning when I wake up. That way it's perfect whether I decide to have it for an afternoon snack or if I enjoy it after dinner.

  • The dates in their own reserve water are the base. Once that is made, there are infinite possibilities! Like the chocolate date shake (which I will be sharing here) & the strawberry banana smoothie (with a twist) that's coming soon!


CHOCOLATE DATE SHAKE:

  • Pour the base (dates and the reserve water they've been soaking in) in the blender.

  • Add 2tsp. cacao

  • Milk of choice: I use 3 large raw milk ice cubes! The ice blended gives a nice body to the shake.

That's it! ...but wait, there's more! Of course, sometimes I vary the recipe and amp it up in different ways. Here's a list of ingredients I use to mix it up:


...And those are just a few ideas! What's nice is that the texture and tastiness of the dates masks the flavor of things that might not be super palatable for picky eaters (i.e. reishi powder).


Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you use to amp up your shakes! As always, #GetSatiated.
