Caramel Macchiato Date Shake

The weather is warming up- which means that I am feeling the need to start making some of my favorite frozen recipes.  One thing I really miss about living in So Cal is heading out to this place on the side of the highway between Orange County & Palm Springs.  It’s called Hadley’s & they make the best Date Shakes EVER!!!  That was where I fell in love with Date Shakes.  When we lived in Southern Nevada we headed out to the Date Farm on the outskirts of Death Valley & I was able to enjoy one there.   It had been so long since I had been able to have one & I was reminded of how much I love them.  Not being able to have them prompted me to make this

  • Whipped topping (opt)
  • Super Mini-Marshmallows for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Add first 3 ingredients into blender & pulse just a couple times.
  2. (too much & it will get to soft & melted & more like a liquid- you want it thick like a malt)
  3. Pour into your glass & top with whatever toppings you wish.

When I was doing my searches for Date Shakes to see what else was out there- I realized that this really is a So Cal thing.  So now all of you that have not had the pleasure of visiting Hadley’s can now give a similar recipe a try.  I wasn’t able to find much of any other recipes out there- which is what prompted this one.  I am so happy I can have my beloved date shakes now.  It will be my summer staple again.  BTW- I used International Delight Iced Coffee for mine.  They have been so good to me through these campaigns that I have worked on with them.  I was not compensated for this post & I purchased the iced coffee in addition to the free creamers I received from them during my last campaign.
