Vanilla Date Breakfast Smoothie
Adding dates to a basic soy milk and fruit smoothie adds a blast of unexpected sweetness. A healthy breakfast treat or a cooling summer snack.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 1
- 4 dates
- ¾ cup soy milk
- 2 bananas
- 6–7 ice cubes
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
Cover the dates with water and allow to soak for at least 10 minutes. This makes them softer and easier to blend.
Discard the soaking water and add the dates and all other ingredients to the blender.
Process until smooth, about 1 minute on medium speed.

For a Smoother Smoothie
Soaking your dates first will help them process a little quicker and results in a smoother consistency. Place dates in a small bowl and cover with water. Let them sit for about 10 minutes, then drain.
