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.

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4-5 pitted dates
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons natural creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ - ½ cup ice

Really enjoyed this. I made it pretty much as shown except I used 3 Medajool dates and slightly less peanut butter. Highly recommend if you’re trying to not use refined sugar in your diet, as I am.

This was really good. Thanks for the recipe. I had to alter mine slightly-i used pitted prunes instead of dates and peanut butter. Delicious.

Very good. Personally I like my drinks really cold so I think next time I'd only use frozen bananas.
