I have tons of smoothie recipes, a few favorites are Kale Banana Chia Hemp Superfood Smoothie, Strawberry Peanut Butter Swirl Smoothie Bowl and Skinny Green Tropical Smoothie.

I’m super excited to share this guest post from my friend Heather. I met Heather a few years ago in San Francisco, and we’ve been friends ever since. She’s an inspiring, positive person – the kind of person you want to be around all the time. She’s also the nutrition expert for The Skinnytaste Cookbook, please welcome her!

Hi there, I’m Heather! I’m a dietitian and the founder of www.heatherkjones.com – a weight loss site that focuses on healing and hope instead of diets (ugh) and deprivation (no thank you!). I’m also the creator of Smaller Size Bigger Life, an online group coaching program for women who struggle with emotional eating, compulsive overeating, or body image issues.

I’m thrilled to guest post on Skinnytaste today (thank you, Gina!), and I’m so honored to be the nutrition expert in the upcoming Skinnytaste cookbook. Gina poured her generous heart into this beautiful book and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!

So I’m a huge fan of green smoothies, in fact I drink a Skinny Green Monster at least a few times a week. But on a recent trip to Bali I discovered a banana smoothie that just blew me away.

The simple combo of banana, dates, yogurt, honey, ice, and (surprise!) cinnamon, makes a refreshing and tasty concoction, especially for sipping on steamy days. I drank one of these delicious smoothies every morning before heading to the pool or biking thru the rice paddies.

  1. I live in Dubai which has over 200 varieties of dates. Wow. My favourite dates are medjool dates. They taste like caramel toffee. Yum!
    When I make a smoothie with dates, I like to remove the pip and let them simmer in a small amount of water (I halve the dates and add them in one layer, and add just enough water to almost cover them). Gently simmer till most of the water is cooked away and the dates are soft and sticky. This makes them soft enough to blend more easily, instead of having chunky chewy bits (some people like the chewy bits though). Why dont you try it and see which way you prefer.

  2. This smoothie was delicious ! Thanks for the recipe 😊

  3. I really really really love this smoothie!!!

  4. Any dairy free subs for greek yogurt? I love smoothies, but I can no longer tolerate any dairy.

  6. Sorry… meant to say "non-dairy milk"! 🙂 When you've been vegan so long, it becomes habit to call things by their "other" name. Our vege-burgers are just "burgers," soy/almond/rice milk is just "milk," etc.

  7. This is very similar to a vegan banana-date smoothie I make. We peel and freeze our bananas when they ripen to a sweet stage, but are not full of brown spots. We use them for all of our smoothies. Add 1-1 1/2 frozen bananas, 6-10 dates (depending on variety and your taste), and 8 oz. milk to a blender, and blend until smooth. No yogurt or honey is needed. The frozen bananas keep the smoothie cold and make it creamy. It's delicious. I do want to try adding some cinnamon, though. That sounds really good.

  8. Another smoothie to try for later/pin now to my Vega Smoothie Pinterest Contest board. So good.

  9. Gave this a try this afternoon, and wow! So yummy and satisfying. Also, a welcomed change from the usual fruity smoothies. Thank you for sharing!

  10. I used coconut milk for this and it worked great!

  11. This is seriously my new favorite smoothie. My blender can't handle chopped dates so i made a date paste instead and used about 1/4 cup of that. I also admit I used a mix of medjool and dakhla noor dates because the standard california ones just can compare. But they're sweet enough that I didn't need the honey so I figure that's a fair trade off!

  12. I tried it again today. I used 1/2tbs on honey and a little less then 1 tbs of chopped dates. It came out great.
