Ahh….dates.

You may think I’m speaking of the kind of “dates” that are hard to come by with two young children, aka “date nights”.  But, no.  I’m talking about the glorious Medjool dates.

I was first turned on to these beauties while watching Brothers & Sisters.  And then there was a great article in Real Simple on smoothies.

And soon my addiction was born.  I substitute unflavored soy milk or 1% milk for the whole milk that the recipe calls for.  This is a deceptively healthy treat…yum!

Creamy Date Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup 1% or soy milk
  • 1/3 cup halved pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup cup ice

Directions

  1. Place the milk and dates in a blender.
  2. Cover and refrigerate until the dates have softened, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the ice and blend until smooth and frothy.
