Sweet, creamy, and packed with protein, this smoothie is SO what you want to wake up to in the morning!
I love breakfast food. Just not… for breakfast. Is that totally weird and stuff? Or are you guys like that too?
I mean, I’ll eat an egg on OR in anything. And cereal ?!? Pfffffft! I need a bowl a day. At least! And don’t even get me started on how much I love me some fraaaaaanch toast. No, really. Don’t get me started!
But in the early am hours the only thing I want most days is to crawl back into bed. And once I realize that’s not happening. COFFEE. Always. But since we’re all real people here, I think we all know that coffee – as miraculous as it is – is not good, proper body fuel. At least not in the long run. This smoothie however, is. It totally is!
And considering you can pulse it up in under two minutes, I say this smoothie is a total win.

This smoothie is delicious. I also added raw almonds.
How many servings is this recipe? Excited to try!
Hi Caitlin. It makes 2 smoothies 🙂
I meant three not theree!
This is the most delicious smoothie I have ever had! I will definitely keep the recipe around for the future! It made theree 10 oz servings.
This sounds delicious, but I recently found out I am diabetic so I’m trying to figure out what I can and cannot have. I think this sounds yummy and has protein but may have too much sugar for me, even if it is natural sugar :(. I may have to omit the dates and or honey, lessen the bananas, add some oats, maybe some chia seeds, not sure. Anyone else know what is needed to make this more diabetic friendly? Does this original recipie have a calorie guide or nutritional info? That would be helpful for me :). Just trying to navigate this new world of diabetes
Hi Niki. You could definitely leave out the honey and dates. If you add oats or chia seeds, I would start with a small amount and add more as needed. I hope you find a combination you enjoy 🙂
I just made this and YUM! I altered a few things. I used fresh, raw milk instead of almond milk, I only used two frozen bananas, and I omitted the honey. I like honey, but after tasting the drink with the dates already in it, I found it sweet enough. I also made mine with half a scoop of chocolate protein powder. Thank you for posting this. I hate making breakfast in the morning. I just want to eat and get on the go. This is going to be a perfect breakfast meal this week. You’re awesome!
Hi Naomi. Thank you so much for your sweet comment 🙂 Your alterations sound delicious and I’m so happy to know you’re enjoying this smoothie recipe.

I’m allergic to nuts so what substitute for almond butter??
Hi Louise. You could just try leaving it out. It won’t be as creamy, but still delicious 😉
You could olso use eggs, if you take a hole egg, if because salmonella, by those conservative eggs
Blends Them, it will add The creamy substance – it sounds gross .. but you will not could taste it
So do you add granola? The picture looks like it.
Hi Amber. No you don’t. I just sprinkled a few quick oats on top of the one in the photo for garnish 😉
I have just made this smoothy and my chocoholic daughter is loving it. Hallelujah! A high protein breakfast for my cereal/sugar junkie. Fantastic combo. Thank you so much
Hi Bianca! That is awesome! So happy to hear it’s a hit 🙂
Sitting here drinking this smoothie as I type. IT IS AWESOME!! I didn’t have the dates on hand. The kids and I are tearing it up! Thanks for a great recipe!
Hi Tera! That is so awesome 🙂 Thank you for letting me know! xoxo
This looks amazing! One question, what is sprinkled on top?
Hi Mandy! I topped it with a sprinkle of nutmeg and a few pieces of granola 😉
