Vanilla Cinnamon Date Shake

Have you ever tried, or heard of, the iconic Palm Springs date shake? We love adding dates into our smoothies for some natural sweetness, but adding them as one of the main ingredients is taking it to the next level! This Vanilla Cinnamon Date Shake is full of my favorite flavors and is also quite healthy. 

It's secret ingredient is frozen cauliflower which makes this smoothie super creamy, and also adds a boost of Folate, Potassium, and Vitamin C! What do you think of the mega date flavor in this smoothie?!

    Great smoothie but warning to moms with kids with nut allergy. Labeled nut free but isn’t. Almond butter is an ingredient.

  • This is the best smoothie recipe I've ever tried. I used one banana and one date, but it was still incredible!

    My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via [email protected] did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.

    Hey Catherine, saw you on The Kitchen today and looked at your amazing site. Question: have you heard anyone say they are having bananas bother their digestive system? I finally figured out that bananas are bothering me about 5 years ago. I love bananas and especially in smoothies. Have tried pumpkin purée and baked sweet potatoes and they kind of work as a substitute but do you know what the problem might be with bananas? My allergist told me that because I am allergic to ragweed, I’ll be allergic to bananas. They never bithered me in the past. Don’t understand. Any ideas?
