When my wife & I taught in L.A. and we’d drive to Phoenix to see my folks, we’d stop in Cabazon along I-10 where they have the giant dinosaur roadside attractions. What they had that was better than dinosaurs were bananna-date shakes. Tonight, I took a stab at it and while they weren’t exactly the same, they were pretty awesome.
4 ripe banannas
4oz of pitted dates (chopped)
4 scoops of vanilla ice cream
1 cup of milk
Mix in blender till thick but smooth.
Variation– 1/2cup of chopped walnuts
But if you’re an Indiana Jones fan, beware of bad dates and NAZI monkeys.
