This recipe has been a staple in my house ever since I could remember. It brings back memories from when I was a kid. My mom and I would go for frozen coffee drinks after school! This recipe is simple and delicious with added health benefits than your typical Frappuccino. It was also perfect for quarantine during the summer as a little refreshing mid-day pick-me-up.
Swap option: Can swap dates for figs, almond milk for regular milk if you prefer.
