Chocolate Date Shake

If you want a smoothie that doesn't taste like a smoothie--this is it. This indulgent shake is secretly healthy and will give you a boost of energy.


DATES are one of my favorite ingredients. I love having them before games or practices because they are high in simple carbs and natural sugars. They are also very nutrient dense! They are the natural sweetener in the recipe and they make this smoothie thick and rich.

Tip: if you have bananas that are about to go bad, chunk them and freeze them in a plastic bag. Using frozen bananas in smoothies and shakes makes them super thick!
