Setting some of the “shake” aside for dipping the rim of the glass right before encrusting it in hemp seeds will surely take your drinking experience to another special level.

Which dates are best for a banana date shake?

All dates are delicious. Though when traveling through the grocery store, there are usually a few brands of dates and types to choose from.

Whichever one you choose, make sure the dates are smooth, plump, and have shiny skin. Avoid those that are too shriveled and contain sugar crystals on the skin. This is a clear sign of old dates.
