– 2 ripe banana– 1/2 cup pitted date– 1 cup Greek yogurt– 1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)– 1 teaspoon honey (optional, for added sweetness)– Ice cubes (optional)
Collect ripe bananas, pitted dates, Greek yogurt, milk, honey (optional), and ice cubes (optional) to have everything ready for blending.
Peel the ripe bananas and chop them into smaller chunks. Ensure the dates are pitted, removing any seeds or hard portions.
In a blender, combine the chopped bananas, pitted dates, Greek yogurt, and milk. If you prefer a sweeter taste, add a teaspoon of honey. For a colder and thicker consistency, toss in a handful of ice cubes. Blend until smooth and creamy.
After blending, check the consistency of your smoothie. If it's too thick, add more milk, and if it's too thin, you can add more bananas or ice cubes. Adjust the sweetness according to your preference by adding more honey if needed.
Pour the Banana Date Smoothie into glasses and savor the delightful combination of flavors. Garnish with a slice of banana or a sprinkle of chopped dates for an extra touch. Whether enjoyed as a quick breakfast or a healthy snack, this smoothie is a delicious way to fuel your day.
