Since the bananas and dates are loaded with natural sugars, they make this a filling breakfast. When you drink this up, you do not need anything else to start your day.  The great thing about this smoothie is that bananas, dates, and milk would keep you full so that you will not feel hungry for the next 4-5 hours.  

This banana date smoothie is much more than a smoothie. A handful of wholesome and enjoyable ingredients are combined together to make this quick breakfast smoothie.   

Making this smoothie is easy. You can actually say that this is child’s play.  Just add some ingredients to a blender, blend, pour, and enjoy! 

I love bananas, juicy dates, cardamom, and cinnamon, so this is a perfect drink for me.

You may also call this banana date smoothie a natural energy drink which would instantly boost up your energy. Bananas and dates both are considered to be high energy foods. When someone lacks energy, these foods can give them an immediate elevation to their low energy levels. 

I am a big smoothie lover, and I try to consume smoothie for at least one time in a day. I have tried many types of smoothies until today and loved most of them. I simply love every type of smoothie - from a sinful one like this 4-Ingredient Strawberry Cake Shake, to the detox one like this Green Tea Watermelon Detox Smoothie

Banana and dates together in a smoothie? I know it might seem too sweet for a smoothie, but trust me, this sweet smoothie is very gratifying & indulging that you would want to hook onto this for a couple of days every week.
