  • 4 cups reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 large pitted dates, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Kosher salt
  • Unsweetened whipped cream and ground cinnamon, for topping (optional)


Step 1

Combine the milk, cocoa powder, dates, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently, until hot and steaming. Continue to cook, without letting the mixture boil, giving the dates time to soften, another 5 minutes.

Step 2

Let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer the mixture to a blender and being careful of the hot liquid, puree until smooth. You can strain the mixture to catch any small chunks of dates that weren't blended.

Step 3

Pour into mugs and top each with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if using.
