Date and Nut Smoothie

This smoothie is a hearty breakfast in one glass. It is abundantly nutritious and provides your daily dose of fibre from the banana, dates and oats. I’ve also used walnuts and almonds in this recipe as they are good sources of fibre and protein.

  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted

  • 1 frozen banana, sliced

  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 C (500 ml) almond milk, chilled

 

FOR GARNISHING

1 Tbsp (15 ml) roasted flaked almonds

¼ tsp (1.25 ml) ground cinnamon

 

  1. Place all the smoothie ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
