Date Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie
This smoothie has become one of my new favorite breakfast meals. I love the combo of the banana, dates, and oats. There’s something about the combo of dates and oats. It kind of reminds me of a cookie with lots of texture. Another bonus? It’s healthy, and keeps me energized and satisfied for hours.
I have to warn you, the texture is different. It all depends on the type of blender you have. I own a regular high speed blender (no vitamix yet). It blends everything up nicely, but there is texture from the dates. Little tiny pieces of dates (which I happen to love). If you have a vitamix, or similar vitamix quality blender, then it will most likely make a smoothie that is creamy and smooth (which I think would be absolutely delicious as well!).
This smoothie is a win win.

Enjoy 🙂 !
I totally agree, dates + oats are an outstanding combo!
Thanks Emily 🙂
This is probably my most favorite smoothie combination ever. I swear it tastes like an oatmeal cookie if you add a pinch of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla extract. I usually toss in a handful of spinach too…just for a sneaky vegetable. 😉
LOVE that idea Amelia 🙂

Totally pinning this! yum! I love dates!
