Banana Date Shake

I am always looking for something sweet that doesn’t have much sugar, so when I found this recipe in my new favorite cookbook, Healthyish, I made it right away. And since last Friday, I have made it officially seven times (#obsessed). It is super easy, delicious, vegan, and curbs my sugar craving without involving sugar! Win win win!


This is not the banana date smoothie. This is a vanilla milkshake — which is what it is supposed to be similar to. Kinda. Sorta. Similar. Maybe not. Ish. Still great.




* 1 frozen banana

* 2 pitted dates

* 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

* 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla

* 1.5 cups of some type of milk




This is a PSA that I have a new favorite dairy-free milk. Oat Milk. It recently had a shortage nation wide. So hoard it in your fridge. It is that good.

Another PSA that this cinnamon is the best cinnamon out there. Buy it.

And then blend it all together.

Big glass, half full. So delicious and creamy.


Happy weekend! And Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. I love oat milk as an alternative to dairy milk. The packaging is also adorable!
