Dates are the sweetener here, and they contribute a rich flavor as well as calcium, magnesium, fiber and potassium to the shake. Look for fresh medjool dates. If your dates are hard, to soften them place in a steamer above 1 inch of boiling water for about five minutes. Use fresh orange juice for the best results. From NYT Recipes for Health.
