Banana Peanut Butter and Date Smoothie

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
  • 1/4 - 1/2 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!

So to be clear...you use TWO bananas for ONE smoothie - a ripe one and a frozen one?

This is so delicious! I’ve been trying to incorporate 5-6 small dates a day from 36 weeks of pregnancy to prepare for labor. This smoothie is amazing and a great way for me to get my dates in! I added the optional one scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder and it was super filling as well!

I have a ripe banana but not a frozen banana so what can I substitute the frozen banana with?

Ice

more ice; the frozen banana in there is to act like ice to make it thick and cold. if you add more ice, however, it might water down the smoothie too much. i definitely recommend frozen banana vs. more ice solution
