Most of the remaining ingredients can be found at your local grocer, unless you decide to use goat’s milk, which may be harder to find.

  • 4 Medjoul dates
  • Orange-flower water
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds
  • 1 quart goat’s or cow’s milk, divided

Combine the dates, avocados, almonds and two cups of milk into a blender. Add sugar and puree until smooth, tasting to see if more sugar is needed.
