Thats a neat date shake - and makes the right pick for the kiddies who hate eating dates and love eating shakes..

I must admit your date shake is an awesome recipe. My hubby hates to have dates, but he just loved this date shake. Thanx for sharing this extremely delicious recipe!

Dates have this not so appealing taste when eaten fresh, and my taste buds do not quite feel comfortable with the same. Well, this date shake seems to be tasting a lot different from the fresh version and I think it's no harm giving it a try! Especially with the chocolate shavings and heavy cream, it would just be hard for dates to put me off! :) By the way, vanilla is not a flavor i adore, so i there any other flavor that would blend well with dates and chocolate shaving? I think may be some other fruit flavors would taste great!

vanila ice cream is my pick for the date shake - guess flavors like strawberry, almond and badam too would go well with this date shake...

This really is the best date shake that I've come across for a long time! I would like to add some chopped almonds to your date shake. Will that be a good choice or do you have any other suggestions?

Though absolutely delicious ...this is so heavy on calories. Can I use milk swapped for the cream here?? I love shakes in the morning but the ice cream in this makes it unsuitable for the morning
