Make a Shake with Medjool Dates!

People go b-a-n-a-a-s for bananas because they have been long praised for their high potassium content. But, did you know the tasty, tiny little jewels, Medjool dates contain 50% more potassium by weight than bananas?

Natural Delights Medjool dates can be used in a variety of ways, including in your coffee, but here is another delicious way to wake up the Medjool date way.

This recipe swaps out bananas and uses Medjool dates instead, for an irresistible  caramelly flavored smoothie that tastes more like a milkshake, but is much healthier.

For added health benefits, add some protein powder (preferably plant derived) and top with inflammation-fighting cinnamon, for some extra flavor and spice.

Since creating this smoothie, I’ve been making a (Medjool) date each morning.

Medjool Date Shake

  • 1 cup pitted Natural Delights Medjool dates
  • cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder (optional)
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

Add almond milk, dates, and vanilla to a blender, and purée. Add ice cubes and continue to blend until the mixture is completely smooth. Pour into a serving glass, top with cinnamon, and enjoy immediately.
