Banana, Date and Almond Shake

I really love smoothies, and with this one I thought I’d put my go-to breakfast of almond butter, banana and dates into the blender and see what happened. What came out was great – thick, smooth and creamy, sweet and almost caramel like.

Serves 2

– 2 large ripe bananas

– 1 and a 1/2 cups of almond milk (make sure it’s cold)

– 6 medjool dates

– 2 teaspoons of almond butter

– 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Optional: 2 teaspoons of maca for an energy boost

Peel the bananas and remove the stones from the dates. Then place all the ingredients in a blender and blend into a creamy deliciousness, this should take 2-3 minutes. Sip, serve and love.

P.S. If your milk isn’t already cold I’d recommend adding a couple of ice cubes or putting the smoothie in the fridge for 1/2 an hour.
