Just made a 1/2 order. No dates, so I used your "touch of maple syrup" suggestion. No almond butter, so I used peanut. Nut milk was homemade cashew-macadamia. Hubba hubba. So good! And I'm drinking it with a straw. ;)

I made this yesterday and the taste was great but I had trouble with the dates staying in little chunks and not blending properly...any tips or tricks to get them blended into the same smooth consistency as the rest of the milkshake?

For people who are not a fan of banana, can try substitute with egg free tofu & add vanilla essence to add some oomph to the taste.

Delicious! Please try swapping the almond butter for a teaspoon of tahini! It's a nice option and high in calcium!

I wish there was a good substitute for dates because I don't like them. :-(

IMO it's way too sweet with the dates. You don't need them. the bananas provide enough sweetness

I loved the dates -- I didn't identify them at first taste, but once I realized they were in there, I credited them (plus the almond butter) with making this more nuanced than my average black & white shake.
Beth, you can also use a touch of maple syrup. To taste. The dates definitely enrich this -- they give it a caramel-like flavor that's perfect for a milkshake -- but it's sweet on its own.

Wow! I have been noticing a lot of this type of shake/smoothie in the past few days on many food blogs. These are wonderful, and are also a great post-workout treat! What a great version :)
