Date and Greek Yogurt Smoothie

One of my favorite 3 ingredient Smoothie.  This perfect for breakfast or a pre-workout boost.  You get the protein you need and as much potassium as a medium banana!!  

Just 3 Ingredients!!

2 Medjool Dates (take the pit out)
1 6 oz Chobani Peach Greek Yogurt (pick your favorite flavor or brand)
1/2 cup of Coconut Milk(Soy, Rice, Almond, Milk go with what you like)
1 cup of Ice (Optional)

Add all ingredients to blender and blend until dates are blended.

This was a delicious smoothie, if you have ever had a date shake (which  i love) this smoothie is NOT a comma inducing sweet.  The flavor of the tangy greek yogurt comes thru and nice little sweet pieces of date.  No sugar necessary its the perfect sweetness.  You can certainly substitute the greek yogurt for regular yogurt, but I personally like the extra protein in greek yogurt.  I had this for breakfast since I like my breakfast on the light side.  If you like a little more protein in your BF add half a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
