This version of the California specialty pairs kefir with store-bought frozen yogurt and dates for a satisfying not-too-sweet treat. Make sure your dates are at room temperature before you use them. They'll blend up much easier this way.
- 4 pitted medjool dates, room temperature
- 1 cup plain, whole milk kefir
- 1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla store-bought frozen yogurt
- Garnish: cinnamon
Combine dates and kefir in a blender and blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute.
Add the frozen yogurt and blend again until smooth, about 20 seconds. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately. Garnish with ground cinnamon if desired.
