The Ultimate
‘Date’ Night Smoothie

A couple weeks ago, I shared about missing New York City and how we fixed the problem by bringing New York to us.

You can read the full details here, but basically we watched the movie Manhattan and tried to recreate a smoothie we discovered in Brooklyn at a cute little cafe called Siggy’s. I’m not sure if we were ever able to match their recipe exactly, but we are definitely enjoying our version. I thought I’d share the ingredients with you today in case you’re in need of a new smoothie recipe. I have a serious sweet tooth, but have been trying to find natural sources of sweetness to fulfill my cravings. This smoothie always satisfies! Hope you enjoy! We even gave it a new name. And it’s enough to serve two people, of course!

The Ultimate “Date” Night Smoothie

– 6 dates (pit removed)
– 2 bananas
– 1.5 cups of almond milk
– 1/4 cup of almond butter

Tips: Feel free to play around with the proportions. We do it a little different each time depending on our mood and which flavors we want to stand out most that night. Also, I’d say the key is to not blend it up entirely smooth. You want to run into little tiny pieces of date with each drink. They’re like finding little pieces of candy in your smoothie.

If you try it out, let me know what you think! And if you’ve got a simple, healthy smoothie recipe to share, please leave it in the comments. We’re always looking for new ones to try! I’ve got a mango here I’m wanting to do something with, but not sure what to pair it with. Any suggestions?
