  • 2 bananas , frozen
  • 1 - 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk , I use SILK brand (see notes below)
  • 4-5 Medjool dates , pitted
  • 1/4 teasp ground nutmeg , plus extra to sprinkle on top of each glass
  • non-dairy vanilla ice cream , optional (see notes below)


  1. Add everything into a blender, such as a Vitamix .
  2. Blend until completely smooth, using a tamper (or push down) if necessary to blend in the frozen bananas.
  3. (optional, not necessary) Add a scoop of non-dairy vanilla ice cream into 4 glasses
  4. Pour the creamy date shake into the 4 glasses and top with some additional ground nutmeg. Enjoy cold!

Recipe Notes

Almond Milk - Amount of almond milk depends on desired thickness of the shake. For a thicker shake, add less.


Non-Dairy Ice Cream - I prefer non-dairy brands such as Nada Moo, Luna Larry Coconut & Bliss, and So Delicious cashew based.
