- 4 cups milk
- 7 teaspoons unsulphured molasses
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- Pinch of coarse salt
- 14 dates, pitted
In a medium saucepan, heat milk, molasses, spices, and salt over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat.
Chop dates in a blender as finely as possible. Add about 1 cup milk mixture; blend, scraping down sides to be sure all dates have been pureed.
Strain date mixture through a fine sieve back into pan; whisk over medium heat until well combined. Divide among four cups, and serve immediately.
