Creamy Almond Banana Date Smoothie

January 16, 2010

This creamy almond banana date smoothie is one of my favorite smoothies. It is just so creamy and delicious.

Fresh dates are one of the great culinary pleasures of life. Dates are the oldest, and certainly the sweetest fruit, with the highest concentration of fruit sugars. They’re so decadent and fabulous. I eat them in moderation. But, when I indulge, I commit.

Throw some pitted dates in your blender with bananas, almond milk, and coconut water, and you’ve got a dessert shake that will make you weak at the knees.

For a richer, more buttery flavor, add 1/2 cup raw cashews. To make this shake nut-free, use rice milk, hemp milk, or coconut milk.
