I have been having lots of smoothies lately because I am having some health issues lately related to my stomach. I have to be on a special diet right now and can’t have some of my favorite foods (chocolate! coffee! sob!)

I was getting bummed about the foods I could eat. I LOVE food and eating and even had a food business. So to have to have all these new restrictions (there are lots) was really disheartening. But I want to feel better. So I’m following the plan.

Today I decided that if I have to have certain foods and not others, I might as well start making some really delicious recipes to enjoy the foods I can have.

That’s where this caramel milkshake recipe came from!

The best caramel milkshake (healthy too!)

The secret yummy whole food ingredient that makes this healthy milkshake taste like caramel? Medjool dates!

It’s the combination of the sticky and sweet medjool dates with the creamy almond butter that gives this healthy milkshake the caramel flavor.  It tastes sweet and indulgent, but is secretly healthy and made with only whole food ingredients.  Total win!

Since most of the caramel flavor comes from the dates, the kind you get is super important!  It won’t be quite as yummy if you have those really dried out dates kicking around the back of your pantry.  Medjool dates (these ones are amazing) are softer, richer, and sweeter and really make the caramel flavor in this healthy milkshake stand out.

I like my milkshakes refrigerator cold, but if you like yours colder, add the handful of ice cubes.  You can also freeze the banana ahead of time; this will make the caramel milkshake colder and thicker.

Salted caramel milkshake version

If you want to make this caramel milkshake a salted caramel milkshake, you can add a bit of sea salt when you’re blending everything together.  I used about 1/16th of a teaspoon (I found 1/8 tsp too salty).  This ended up being about 2 big pinches of salt.

Healthy milkshake toppings

For an extra decadent treat, you can top your healthy caramel milkshake with whipped coconut cream (or whipped cream if you’re not vegan/paleo).  For an added splurge, top with a drizzle of this.

If you have 3 minutes, let’s make this yummy (and healthy!) treat!
