Recipe: Frosty almond date shake

Dietitian's tip: This thick, creamy shake is a breeze to make. Just be certain that the almond milk and yogurt are truly ice cold, and the banana is frozen. Peel and halve the banana before freezing.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

1/3 cup chopped pitted dates
2 tablespoons warm water
2 cups vanilla almond milk, chilled
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla soy or dairy yogurt
1 very ripe banana, frozen
4 ice cubes
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, plus extra for garnish

Directions

Put the dates in a small bowl and sprinkle with the warm water. Let soak for 5 minutes to soften, then drain.

In a blender, combine the dates, almond milk, yogurt, banana, ice cubes and the 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Blend until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.

Pour into tall, chilled glasses and garnish each with a dusting of nutmeg.
