Khajoor Raas(Dates Shake)

For thousands of years dates have been a staple of the Middle East. The date palm most likely originated in the Persian Gulf and has been cultivated possibly as early as 6000 BC!

 Later Arabs began to spread dates around northern Africa and Spain. Finally they were introduced into California by the Spaniards in 1765.

When unripe, dates range from bright red to bright yellow in color, depending on variety.
 They are an excellent source of Vitamin C and fiber.
You can do lot of goodies with this fruit. You can cook it, bake it or make nice desert with it. But it is nothing like making a date shake, in this hot summer. It is perfect to have this shake after coming out from a rigorous swim or if you are relaxing next to the pool.

Recently we visited China Ranch, a privately owned farm in California. There is no cost to see this ranch. It was free and 1 1/2 hr drive from las vegas. It is way out there and in the middle of no where. But it is worth taking the drive to this place. you can easilly spend 2-3 hrs at the ranch seeing the creek, river  1 miles from the ranch and beautiful fruit bearing palm trees. They have different kinds of dates grown on their ranch as well as they give you different types of dates to sample. You can order delicious and famous date shakes for $3.50. I purchased their pre-boxed date paste only for $4.95 for 16 oz. So no seeds and no worries to chop them or make paste out of it.

The lady at the China Ranch had made the smoothie mixing the date paste and vanilla ice cream, adding other toppings like banana, nutella or nuts and more. I choose the banana topping

When I came home, I could not resist or keep thinking about that date shake. Here you go! It is like having manna from heaven. It is so smooth, delicious and  warmth in every sip. This is a perfect smoothie for fathers day on Sunday! Make your dad relax with this delicious treat.
