Dates, almond milk and bananas come together for a sweet tropical smoothie with unexpectedly sophisticated flavors. Rolled oats are the secret ingredient, used to provide a luscious texture to this delicious breakfast drink.

This recipe comes to us from Cat of The Verdant Life.

Serves 2


  • 8 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats


Place the dates and almond milk into a blender or food processor. Puree until the dates are the size of specs.

Add the bananas to the blender and puree until smooth.

Add the oats, wait 2-3 minutes for the oats to soak into the date almond milk mixture and puree.

Pour the smoothie into 2 glasses and enjoy!
