As I’ve mentioned before, I find dates too sweet to eat on their own but due to their nutrient rich properties, I try to put them into smoothies, fruit salads and other ways to complement their flavor.
Here is a very berry Strawberry-Banana Smoothie, with some dates added for nutrition and sweetness. Since the dates are naturally so sweet, there is no need to add additional sweeteners, which is how I have been trying to make my smoothies in recent recipes. No honey – No sugar – just naturally fruit sweetness.
