Date Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

This date smoothie is delightfully sweet and creamy. The dates, which are fruits that come from the date palm tree, add thickness and natural, caramel-like sweetness to the smoothie. They are blended with almond milk, yogurt and crushed ice as well as some more amazing-tasting ingredients. This breakfast treat is ready in as little as 5 minutes.

How Does it Taste?

The taste of dates can be described as a blend of honey, caramel, and brown sugar with a hint of butterscotch. The sweetness is intense, but it also carries subtle undertones of molasses and a slight nuttiness. The other ingredients in this smoothie balance out that sweetness so that your taste buds don’t get a sugar overload.

Ingredients

Date smoothie ingredients prepped on brown background.
  • dates – The texture of dates is another aspect of their appeal. Be sure to use fresh medjool dates (my favorite) as they are soft and chewy. They are tender and have a slight stickiness. If you don’t over-blend, you will get little bits of this texture in your smoothie–which I personally love.
  • vanilla almond milk – Make sure you get the unsweetened kind or the smoothie will taste too sweet.
  • almond butter – Almond and other nut butters are a popular addition to smoothies because they taste nutty, add thickness and creaminess, energy and nutrients. I like to use a full ¼ cup in my smoothie but that does add a lot of calories so feel free to use less if that’s a concern.

How to Make it

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender.
  2. Blend on high speed until smoothie. If you would like it to be thicker, you can add more ice.
  3. Transfer to a glass and serve.
