Date Shake

When I was younger and lived in Arizona & California, my family would often pass by date farms in southern California when on road trips to different places. And without fail, we would always stop and get a date shake for the road. I’ve always told Ryan about this yummy concoction but last night I decided to recreate it for him. It’s super simple & brought back such good memories.


I puréed a handful or two of dried, pitted dates with about a cup of milk & then added enough ice cream for the two of us and blended again. Simple.


Ryan approved. Try it – you’ll like it.

For Christmas, Ryan and I bought each other plane tickets to California. We returned last Sunday and it was quite possibly one of the best weeks of my life.


We drove down Highway 1 for an entire day – from San Francisco to Santa Barbara. It’s by far the prettiest place I’ve ever seen. And it is something that I believe everyone should do at least once at some point in their life. And if I had all the money in the world, I think I would live in that little house atop the hill – if you squint, you can see it.
