Date Caramel

  • 1 cup soft pitted dates
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp coconut milk
  • 1.5 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 pinches cinnamon

Banana Smoothie Bowl

  • 3 frozen bananas, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp date caramel
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • ⅛ tsp vanilla
  • pinch cinnamon


  • 3/2 cup Love Crunch Apple Crumble Granola
  • ⅓ apple, thin sliced
  • cinnamon sticks
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp extra date caramel (or more!)


Date Caramel

  1. In a food processor, combine dates and coconut oil. Process until smooth, using a spatula to pull the date mixture away from the sides as needed. Once smooth, add the coconut milk and maple syrup. Transfer to an air tight food storage container.

Banana Smoothie Bowl

  1. In a high speed blender or food processor, blend frozen bananas, date caramel, coconut milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon until smooth. The mixture will be very thick.


  1. Serve the banana smoothie base in a bowl and top with small spoonfuls of date caramel. Gently stir the dollops of date caramel into the smoothie. Top with thin sliced apples, cinnamon, and Love Crunch Apple Chia Crumble Granola. Eat with a spoon.


The date caramel recipe will make more than you'll use in this smoothie bowl. Leftover caramel can be used to sweeten oatmeal, smoothies, tea and coffee, or it can be used as a spread on toast or fruit.
