Date shakes are a classic Palm Springs treat worth getting to know. Sun Basket’s dairy-free version is packed with protein and flavor. You may never go back to plain old scrambled eggs after you’ve tried them with our custom curry spice blend of fresh ginger, ground turmeric, and ground coriander.

  • ⅓ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup pitted dates
  • 3 or 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • EGGS:
  • 4 pasture-raised organic eggs

Nutrition per serving



Prep the shake ingredients

  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Coarsely chop the dates.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems.


Blend the shake ingredients

In a blender, combine the almond milk, almonds, dates, mint leaves, cardamom, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly with salt, if desired, and blend until smooth.


Serve the shakes

Pour into glasses and serve.


Prep and cook the eggs

  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended.
In a small frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the curry paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid begins to thicken and the tomatoes are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs and cook, stirring gently, until just set but still moist, 2 to 3 minutes.



Transfer the scramble to individual plates, top with the fried shallots, if using, and serve.
