Date and Banana Protein Smoothie

  • Author: Marie Bostwick
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • ½ cup coconut water (can sub almond milk, regular milk, or plain water)
  • ½ cup nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 T peanut butter (optional)
  • 3 Medjool dates, cut into small pieces (additional if you want a sweeter smoothie)
  • 1 medium frozen banana, cut into slices


  1. Place the ice cubes and coconut water in the bottom of the blender jar. Add the yogurt and peanut butter on top, then the date pieces and frozen banana slices.
  2. Pulse the ingredients in the blender (stop the blender and stir my hand if ingredients get stuck, then blend again) until the ingredients are well combined into a thick smoothie.
  3. Pour smoothie into a glass and enjoy immediately.
