DIY Date Smoothie




My husband and I went to the grocery store and stocked up on items we thought we would need before baby. I passed by some medjool dates and added them to the cart because I remembered some of my fellow pregnant friends saying they were really good for possibly helping labor get started in the third trimester. Healthline has a really great article explaining the health benefits of eating dates while pregnant! Read it here.


I reached out to my sweet friend Katie, who just recently had a baby, for a date smoothie recipe that I remembered her talking about.





Look how adorable my sweet friend is with her new baby!!!

DIY Date Smoothie

4 Medjool Dates

1 frozen banana

1 cup oats

Fill with milk/ice to size

Add chocolate of choice


I didn't have oats at my house, but I did have NuNatural's oat fiber. I did a little experimenting and came up with an adapted recipe that I ended up loving.


I also used my OYeet blender to make the smoothie. OYeet has a fabulous giveaway going on right now until the end of June! Enter the giveaway here.





My adapted recipe:

4 Medjool dates

1 teaspoon organic cocoa

1 teaspoon of Haitian vanilla

1 teaspoon oat fiber

1 ripe banana

1/4 cup homemade cold brew

1/2 cup almond milk

Ice cubs
