I love starting my day with this Banana Date Smoothie. It is rich, creamy and tastes like a treat while still offering you a lot of healthy ingredients to start your day. You only need 5 ingredients to create this smoothie so it not only tastes great but it is so easy to throw together before work or in the afternoon.

Stonyfield Greek Yogurt, milk, a frozen banana, 4 pitted dates and a scoop of Healthy Skoop’s Super Skoop All-in-One Nutritional Shake. With this smoothie you are getting protein, calcium, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3s. I love making a double batch of this smoothie to share with the kiddos. They go crazy for it!

If are you aren’t familiar with Healthy Scoop let me tell you a little bit about them. Their Healthy Skoop’s Super Skoop All-in-One Nutritional Shake that I used in this smoothie is USDA Organic, gluten-free, soy-free, whey-free, dairy-free and Non-GMO.

Their all-in-one nutritional shake has 20 grams of organic brown rice, pea, and hemp come together to create a complete protein with a complete amino acid profile.  Each serving touts the antioxidant equivalent of four cups of organic fruits and veggies, plus Omega-3s from plant sources promote heart health and may help regulate cholesterol.  It also offers 50% of your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals from whole foods.

Healthy Skoop takes nutrition seriously and donates 3% of every product purchase to Project Produce, which gives grants of $2,500 to help qualified schools put more fresh produce in lunch lines and encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. Project Produce has assisted 51 schools in 21 states and over 24,000 students have benefited from the program to date. I love supporting organizations that are doing such great work!

When my kids are asking for snacks all afternoon this Banana Date Smoothie is on my list of smoothies that I make for them. I love that the dates naturally sweeten the smoothie and the Greek yogurt and frozen banana create a creamy texture. It almost tastes like a banana milkshake. 😉

My kids sure think it is!
