Date Caramel Apple Smoothie

I wanted to share one of my new favorite morning smoothies today. It is delicious, and the girls love it too!

Date Carmel Apple Smoothie


For the date caramel:

5 very soft Medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup hot water

1 Tablespoon organic coconut sugar (this is the one I use)

1 teaspoon Young Living Yacon Syrup (or you can order this one from Amazon)

2 Tablespoons organic, extra virgin coconut oil (this is my favorite brand)

1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract (this is my favorite organic, Fair-Trade brand)

Pinch of Celtic grey sea salt

For the smoothie:

1 large organic apple, peeled, cored & chopped (I prefer Pink Lady/Honeycrisp varieties. Gala is also good!)

1/4 cup organic apple juice or cider

1 cup organic coconut milk (may substitute with almond, if preferred)

1 scoop Young Living Pure Protein Complete Vanilla Spice (soooooo yummy!)

2 drops Young Living Cinnamon Bark Vitality essential oil

1 cup crushed ice


  1. Place all ingredients for the date caramel in a small blender or food processor and blend until very smooth.

  2. Combine all smoothie ingredients in a high-speed blender (like a Vitamix), and blend until creamy.

  3. Drizzle the date caramel on the inside of 2 cups. Pour the smoothie into the cups, top with more caramel, and serve immediately.

  4. Serves 2. Enjoy!
