Happy Birth Date! Date-Banana-Banana Almond Milk Smoothie

Happy Birth Date! Date-Banana-Banana Almond Milk Smoothie 

Birthdays...they come once a year & often, we put high expectations on that one meaningful date.

More often or not, I find that putting a lot of expectations on one particular day of the year leads to shortcomings as well as disappointment. What if, instead of putting all this effort into wanting the day anniversary of the date we were born so special, we instead put that same energy into making that new year of our newly turned age special?

Joolie Organic Dates & Organic Date Syrup {c/o} 

After all, it's not the money, the gifts, or the bells & whistles we remember at days end when we close our eyes, but the gathered memories.

However, there is one date, in particular, that is special...

This May marks a milestone birthday for me...can you guess my age? Aside from the month of May, I absolutely love organic dates! Date, get-it?

My love for dates, coffee, bananas, & a healthy lifestyle all lead to this post...a banana date smoothie.

I made this filling smoothie the other day, & boy was it good. A few ingredients made this smoothie blog post worthy as I used Almond Breeze Banana Almond Milk as well as a Joolie Organic California Date & a dash of their Organic Date Syrup. A bit of caffeine is found here too. Want the recipe to recreate this date smoothie? Read the below!
