After School Snack: Strawberry-Date Smoothie

This smoothie is perfectly sweetened with dates, one of the best all-natural sweeteners. They are a good source of fiber as well as an excellent source of potassium and other vitamins and minerals.


  • 1 cup (8 oz/250 ml) almond milk
  • 2 dates (pitted)
  • 1 small banana
  • 12 strawberries


  1. Pour milk into blender, add pitted dates. Blend until the dates are dissolved.
  2. Next add bananas and strawberries (freeze them the night before for a thicker, more creamy smoothie).
  3. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
