Smoothies and shakes are an awesome healthy option for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or post-workout fuel. They are super popular because of how easy they are to put together and packed with so much flavor.

This date shake is what dreams are made of. It is perfectly naturally sweetened from the dates and so creamy from the banana and nutty from the almond butter. All the flavors go so well together; it’s almost like a treat! You will be addicted to this drink; I promise. Not only is this date shake gluten free, dairy-free, and vegan but it is also a fantastic way to utilize dates in your pantry year round.

For this date shake, all you need is 5 minutes and just a few ingredients tossed in a blender and voila! You have yourself a creamy luscious beverage in no time at all that is high in nutrients!

  • 24 oz Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 Dates pitted, softened
  • 1 Banana frozen, sliced


  • Combine all the ingredients in the blender and blend until creamy. Enjoy!


I like to use Medjool dates because they are meatier and have more flavor than most other dates.
To soften dates, just place them in warm water for 15 minutes.
You can use any nut butter or milk for this recipe as well.
If you have ripe bananas, other than making banana bread you can slice those bananas and store them in a ziplock container in the freezer for smoothies/smoothie bowls.

    Made this shake several times and it’s always been great! Just wondering what kind of almond butter you use?

    1. Hi Charlie,
      Thanks for the great review! I use the Kirkland brand Almond Butter from Costco. I prefer it since the only ingredient is almonds!
