This was the recipe that first introduced me to the healthiest, all-natural sugar substitute that is now one of my go-to ingredients: dates!

Years ago, I had a membership to a gym that had a vegan cafe attached to it, which was where I had my very first vegan banana date shake. I couldn’t BELIEVE how tasty it was! Like magic to my taste buds.

After perfecting the recipe at home, I decided this is by far is my favorite smoothie ever because:

A) It is ridiculously delicious.
B) It’s healthy, dairy free, and vegan-friendly. (Score!)
C) There’s no added sugar.
D) It’s super easy. (Only 4 ingredients!)
