If you’re in the mood for a healthy chocolate milkshake, give this Easy Choc Medjool Date Smoothie a go. It’s gluten free, dairy free, vegan and sweetened only with two fresh Medjool dates.

I developed the recipe for Natural Delights® using their online Smoothie Nutrition Calculator. It’s a handy tool that allows you to build a smoothie to suit your needs with live nutrition calculations as you add each ingredient. It allows you to pick which type of smoothie you’re in the mood for: Energy, Recovery or Meal Replacement. Then it gives you a range of ingredients to select from to build your smoothie. They all start with two fresh Medjool dates to naturally sweeten the smoothie and provide a good hit of potassium.

I used the Recovery smoothie type to build this Easy Choc Medjool Date Smoothie. Its nutrition summary comes out as:

Calories 455
Protein 12g
Carbs 56g
Fibre 10g
Fat 20g
Potassium 1148mg

I recommend ensuring that your coconut water is chilled, otherwise you could add a little ice. You could also substitute almond butter or another nut butter for the cashew butter. But I love the creaminess that cashew butter provides. The addition of chia seeds also helps to thicken up the smoothie.
