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.

7 pitted dates
1 cup vanilla flavored rice milk
4 ice cubes
Combine strawberries, bananas, dates and rice milk in a blender. Process well.
Add ice cubes and use ice crush button on blender until well blended.

looks great Mireille..ya…even I feel we can do with the sweetness of dates..I die for the honey flavor..so add a bit:)
I am into juicing these days and would surely like to try very berry banana smoothie !
I think a table spoon of peanut butter would do the smoothie some good. Extra protein, extra fiber to the smoothie and other micro nutrients.
Nice addition of dates Mireille.. Thnx for linking up one of my favs..
