I don’t have much to say about this smoothie except that you need to make it ASAP. This is one of those smoothie recipes that you should tag/save/file away for whenever you have dates hanging around in your kitchen. Dates are enjoyed many different ways, but personally, in a smoothie is my favorite. I love how it effortlessly and naturally sweetens any recipe though!

The rest of the smoothie ingredients compliment the date so well and create a cozy, cant-put-down blend. Everything from the flavor to the consistency is what makes this Peanut Butter Date Shake an absolute winner!
