Healthy Snickers Smoothie

This snickers smoothie is my go-to healthy treat on those days when I want a sweet breakfast, snack or dessert! This smoothie is full of superfood ingredients to satisfy your taste buds and help you feel better.

What You Will Need:

  • Milk of choice – Any milk will work in this smoothie, so it’s easy to make a vegan and dairy free smoothie, if you wish.
  • Pitted Date – Dates are a sweet flavored fruit that grow in clusters at the top of the date palm tree. Dates are full of fiber and aide in detoxifying the body. Dates are extremely nutritious and support brain and bone health.
  • Cacao Powder – This plant-based superfood is less processed and a healthier alternative to cocoa powder. Cacao has a delicious, rich chocolate taste and is high in iron and magnesium. If you’re in a pinch, cocoa powder can be used.
  • Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are a great source of Omega-3 and fiber. Adding these to the smoothie will help keep you feeling fuller longer.
  • Banana – fresh or frozen banana. When my bananas start to turn brown, I peel them and put them in a ziplock bag in the freezer, so I always have frozen bananas for smoothies.
  • Peanut Butter
Ingredients needed to make Healthy Snickers Smoothie

Let’s Make This Healthy Snickers Smoothie!

This date snickers smoothie is easy to make. Simply put all ingredients in a blender, I use a Nutribullet, and blend well. If you want your Healthy Snickers Smoothie to be colder add a handful of ice. The date can be difficult to breakup and blend completely, so you may need to blend twice to get it smooth. When the smoothie is blended completely, pour it into a glass and enjoy!

    Thanks for sharing this Snickers-inspired recipe! Snickers is one of my favorite chocolate snacks. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find dates where I live. Any suggested alternative?

    Instead of using ice, I cut the bananas up in 1-inch pieces and freeze them. In fact, I freeze all of my smoothie fruit. That way the smoothie doesn’t taste watered down, but it’s still nice and cold.

    Hi, I’m allergic to banana, any suggestions on an alternative? Apple sauce just doesn’t work the same.
