Best Smoothie You’ll Ever Taste

date smoothie

Smoothies are a perfect way to enjoy fruit during winter, because they’re best with frozen fruit (in my opinion) and offer variety even when not many fruits are in season.

Today, I had the best smoothie of my life.  The combination was unplanned, but ended up being flavorful, sweet, and exotic-tasting.  I don’t think I can make any other combo for the time being…I’m hooked on this one!

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 cup 1% milk or soymilk
  • 1 cup frozen pitted cherries
  • 1 cup frozen sliced peaches
  • 1 large frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Combine dates, yogurt, and milk in a blender until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until the mixture is well-combined. This smoothie will be thick and is best eaten with a spoon. If you like a thinner, drinkable smoothie, use a fresh banana and/or thawed fruit. Enjoy!

      Dates remind me of you for some reason. I don’t even know if you like them but this smoothie is amazing!
