Strawberry Date Smoothie

Strawberry Date Smoothie - just four ingredients!Happy Labor Day! I hope you all are enjoying the long weekend.

This smoothie is made up of just four ingredients and is so delicious. If I have leftover dates (usually from making protein bars or some other snack recipe), I’ll put them in my smoothies as a natural sweetener. They’re especially handy if you’re using unsweetened acai in your smoothies, which can be a little blah without some fruit (or dates!) to compliment it. Strawberry Date Smoothie - just four ingredients!

  1. This is a great recipe – I have used dates in baking as a natural sweetner and to help stick everything together, but haven’t thought to use them in a smoothie. Thick and delicious! I wish I had a blender in my hotel room to try it now 😛 Happy Labor Day!

  2. This was just the recipe I was looking for! Dates have to be my favourite thing ever, I always love adding them to my cereal to sweeten it up. Thanks x
