  • 300 ml/ 11/4 cups Milk (full fat)
  • 80 g/ 2/3 cup whole pitted dates (soft ones, such as Medjool blend well)
  • Ground cinnamon - a generous pinch
  • Ground nutmeg - a generous pinch
  • 1 1/2 tsp Malted milk powder (see notes)
  • For the Spiced Chocolate Malted Date Shake add 1 level tbsp cocoa powder


  • Place all ingredients into a blender with a few ice cubes and whizz together until the dates are finely blended
  • Serve immediately


1. If you cannot get hold of malted milk powder, you can substitute a malted milk drink such as Horlicks - at a pinch you could use malt extract but it does tend to stick to the base of the blender. 2.If you don't want to add the malt, this drink is delicious with the first 4 ingredients.
