Lara Katz: Dreaming Up Delicious


Delicious Banana Date Smoothie Recipe

A Healthy and Filling Smoothie You Can Make At Home

by: Lara Katz

I had the most delicious smoothie the other day at a juice bar- but it cost $11! Chances of me returning back to the same place for the same smoothie are slim to none. I've recreated the same smoothie, and saved myself $11 without leaving my house to get it! This recipe makes two smoothies, so if you only want one, simply cut the ingredients in half. Because you are blending a frozen banana and ice I recommend a high quality blender such as a Vitamix where possible - try in steps on pulse if not.


1 1/2 cups ice
1 1/2 cups skim milk or unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 of 1 frozen banana
3 dried dates, chopped

  Place all ingredients in blender and mix well until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses and drink right away.

Makes 2 smoothies
