Whether you’re new to the smoothie game, or just have a pretty big sweet tooth, dates are one of the best ways to sweeten up any blend! Not only do they provide both soluble and insoluble fiber, they’re also high in calcium, phosphorus and antioxidants. When combined with pear (another sweet, fiber-filled fruit), mild summer squash, and acai berry powder (which packs a big antioxidant punch), they create a sweet treat that will keep you satisfied and energized for hours.
