VANILLA DATE SMOOTHIE

This Vanilla Date Smoothie is a sweet treat any time of day! Whether for breakfast or after the gym, it’s decadent, healthy and delicious!

So after my workout today, I came home and made myself this vanilla date smoothie, as I’ve been doing a lot lately. And as always, it was a perfect sweet treat for a job well done!

Earlier this month, I picked up this big beautiful box of dates from my local Indian farmers market. How could I resist?!

These are the extra fancy ones and they are the most tender, soft, sweet and caramely dates I’ve had in long time. Fresh dates are simply the best, they are sweet and ready to be put to good use.

As soon as I got home from the market I put together this vanilla date smoothie and loved every sip, especially those little date pieces that are like pieces of heaven to eat. If you’ve got some dates and frozen bananas on hand, I suggest you treat yourself to something simple and wonderful!

HOW TO MAKE VANILLA DATE SMOOTHIE

Combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add a splash of extra almond milk as needed.

You may have visually small pieces of dates within the shake. That’s ok, and even with those I had no trouble using my straw without having to clear the bottom of it maybe once or twice. Those little chunks are caramely and delicious!
