In a blender, process the dates and 1/4 cup milk at high speed until smooth. Add remaining 1/4 cup milk, vanilla ice cream, and nutmeg; blending at low speed until well mixed. The goal is to achieve a paste-like texture with minimal chunks.
Pour into a tall, chilled glass, top with whipped cream, and serve immediately.
Makes 1 serving.
Chocolate Date Shake: Add 1 1/2 teaspoons chocolate syrup.
Chocolate Chip Shake: Substitute chocolate chip ice cream for the vanilla ice cream.
Orange Date Shake: Substitute 1/2 cup orange juice for 1/2 cup milk.
* Preferably Medjool Dates. Other dates have thicker skins and don't blend as well.
