I just love this smoothie, especially at night when my sweet cravings hit! It is also one of my favorite ways to start my day and get a bunch of spinach in.

If you love peanut butter cups, but you want to be healthy...this is your smoothie!! I made mine with 4 small dates and it tastes like peanut butter pie or cheese cake. It it a great way to get in some greens while still getting the flavor of a rich dessert without any unhealthy ingredients.

Last night after dinner I was craving sweets big time, so we made this and I munched on some black bean brownies. I felt so spoiled! We added a whole banana to it instead of half, and threw in 2 medjool dates. Totally delish! A year ago, just the thought of these things would have made me cringe, but now I am loving it!

This smoothie is a winner! I loved the subtle hits of peanut butter. I used a whole banana instead of half. I'm definitely adding this smoothie to my breakfast repertoire.

I hadn't made any kind of dessert for a while and came across this recipe. Wow! I'm sure glad I did. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, when she was sipping the last bit out of the glass with her straw I came over to get the glass from her to put it in the wash. But she said "Wait just a minute!" so she could keep sipping to get the last drop of the smoothie.
I'm not much of a Reese's peanut butter cup kind of a guy, but I really liked this smoothie.
Thanks Barbara...

Delish! I made it for my 11 year old son who is pretty picky. He saw me putting spinach in it and was concerned. I told him, just taste the smoothie. He loved it and drank the whole cup. I added 4 dates, and increased the bananas.

It's a great start. I made a few changes, though. I added 2 medjool dates, a whole banana, and 2 tbsp of peanut butter and I was in heaven. Yum!

Ya, I think I'll try that next time...it's got a bitterness to it that I wasn't expecting?

I used walnuts instead of peanuts, 2 T of cocoa powder, 3/4 banana, and 2 medjool dates. Fabulous!

Delicious and very satisfying! I stopped using carton nut milks a while ago - it's too quick and easy to just make my own right before the recipe calling for it! This is a keeper, thank you!

I loved this! I did put in two medjool dates. . Used large regular kale without stem instead of the baby kale. I used only the half cup soy milk. It had just the right amount of sweetness for me. I will put this in my list of regular smoothies to go to.

Loved this, although I had to do 2 frozen bananas because I was out of dates and I used vanilla bean..added ice too to thicken it! I am a pb lover and now this   is my new fav smoothie!

I cannot believe I am just now stumbling upon this recipe.  It is the most awesome smoothie of all that I have tried.  I throw in a handful of ice cubes in addition to the regular recipe ingredients, almond milk (maybe 1/2 cup) and just 1 medjool date.  This tastes like a chocolate peanutbutter milkshake.  This is my new go-to dessert.

On the right-hand corner just below the title are a couple of options: first is 'Print Recipe" - you can either print a hard copy or save a PDF file.  The second option (below '"Print Recipe") is "Sae to my Recipe Box."
