The Coffee Date Shake is a sweet, creamy and luxurious shake without the unhealthy attributes of a regular milkshake. Amazingly tasty. Remarkably healthy. Hard to resist.
For once I am perfectly timed. I’d like to say that it’s by meticulous and careful planning that leads me to be sharing my Coffee Date Shake with you during California’s National Date Festival. But I won’t lie. It is pure coincidence.
Last week I thought about, created and photographed this Coffee Date Shake with cardamom and vanilla because my kids were home all week on their half term break. I wanted to treat them to something tasty and healthy (um… apart from the coffee). And they were eager to help on the photoshoot since we share the profits when the images sell.
This week I’ve discovered that there is a National Date Festival. It has taken place ever year since 1947 to celebrate the Date Palm harvest in the Coachella Valley in California.
Confession #1: One of the things I love about blogging is researching what I’m about to write about and discovering interesting, sometimes trivial, often amusing and sometimes plain weird facts to share with you all. Today it’s finding the date festival. Pure joy – I love dates.
Anyway, the Coffee Date Shake. …
