The No Ice Cream Milkshake

Admittedly, when you think of a milkshake, it's cool, creamy and probably not very nutritious.  This milkshake changes things around.  Sarah Waldman, who wrote the cookbook Feeding a Family came by Tonia's Kitchen to talk about a milkshake that contains no ice cream, but instead healthy things like dates, bananas and mint.  It tastes amazing (chances are good your little ones won't know the difference) and accomplishes dessert with very little sugar.

5 dates, pitted
2 cups whole milk (or your favorite unsweetened nut or plant milk)
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup ice
1 frozen banana
5 fresh mint leaves
Simply whizz everything together in a blender, divide among 4 cups, and enjoy immediately.
