Healthy Date Shake

Medjool dates are fantastic for naturally sweetening desserts and smoothies

Date shakes are typically made with vanilla ice cream and Medjool dates, and occasionally nuts and cinnamon are added.

If you’re like me and prefer healthy smoothies that taste like shakes, this recipe is for you.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

A blender

Milk

Dates

Banana

Protein Powder

Cinnamon

Ice Cubes

Almond Butter

INSTRUCTIONS

If your dates are not pitted, remove the pit and discard. Roughly chop the dates and add to a blender.

1:

Top with almond milk, banana, protein, cinnamon, vanilla, and almond butter

2:

Blend until smooth, then add ice cubes as needed to thicken. Continue to blend until completely  smooth and creamy.

3:

Pour into a glass. I like to top this date shake with slivered almonds and a dusting of cinnamon.
