This banana peanut butter & date smoothie is a healthy alternative to curb your sweet tooth! Sweetened naturally with dates, this smoothie is going to be your new favorite "dessert!"

If there was ever a time that I could truly say how much I love a smoothie, this banana peanut butter and date smoothie would be it. I make this smoothie daily. It’s the perfect post-workout drink (you can easily add in vanilla protein powder to this) or the perfect after-dinner treat to curb that sweet tooth.

Since I’ve been on my sugar-free challenge, this is what I have been having as a treat every evening. It’s naturally sweetened due to the dates and it literally tastes like a dessert and it’s actually GOOD for you because there is NO added sweeteners! It’s all-natural and tastes like a million bucks.

Seriously, it’s SOO good. I’m 100% hooked and I’m never hooked on smoothies. I even got my coworker to make it one morning and he loves it! When I say I’m truly in love with a smoothie, this is the one.

With this smoothie, to preserve the flavor, I use ice and frozen bananas. I love my smoothies thick so the amount of ice you use will definitely vary depending on how you like your smoothies! I don’t recommend using frozen fruit in this unless you want a mixture of fruit flavors but I beg you try this just as is first and tell me you don’t love it just for its pure banana, peanut butter, and date flavor.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4-5 pitted dates
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons natural creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ - ½ cup ice
  • Optional: your favorite protein powder. I recommend vanilla or chocolate flavored so it doesn' affect the flavor of this smoothie too much.

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients into a power blender (like a Vitamix) and blend until smooth. If you like it thinner, add more almond milk.

Notes

Feel free to use whatever nut butter you like. We have made this with almond butter and cashew butter before and it's just as delicious!

This was INSANELY GOOD! I never included dates in my original banana smoothie but omg! Next time I will definitely boil the dates in water to soften them . I HATE that it’s 500 calories lol I can only drink 1 a day if that’s the case

It’s very good but my blenders never crush the dates. You actually do need to spend the big bucks on a vitamix for that but I never use the blender enough to spend that much

a suggestion on the dates: try soaking them in water for a few hours or overnight - it would soften them and be easier to crush/blend with a regular blender :)

This is delicious! I've made a similar one with prunes but it's even better with dates. T

I’m sorry but this was so sweet I could hardly choke it down - the sweetness of the dates with the sweetness of the banana is way too much! I even used unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened naked whey, and unsweetened natural peanut butter and added spinach to hopefully not spike my blood sugar - it still didn’t cut the sweetness. It was so sweet, I can’t imagine if anyone uses milk/pb/protein powder with any added sugar or sweeteners!
