  • 1/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

  2. Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth.

Recipe Notes

*Any protein powder can be substituted for the collagen protein.  However if using a pre-sweetened protein powder be sure to check the sweetness of your smoothie before adding any of the dates.  Or if preferred you can also leave the protein out completely.

 

*You may prefer to add more dates to achieve your desired sweetness.  Also, honey or maple syrup can be substituted for the dates, but check a conversion chart for proper measurements.
