Banana and date energy smoothie

This has to be hands down my all time favourite smoothie! It’s even better when it’s dairy free, has a natural protein shot of LSA and medjool dates for a sweet, chewy surprise!

However, it’s the warmth from the spices, the cinnamon and in particular, nutmeg which evoke the senses with a nourishing reassurance.

This is a great way to use over-ripe bananas (which taste better) and can be frozen in advance.

For an extra special touch, chill and rim the glass with honey and freshly grated nutmeg….absolute bliss!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large banana (ideally frozen)
  • 1 cup of almond or coconut milk
  • 1 medjool date
  • 2 tbsp of coconut yoghurt
  • 1 x tbsp LSA
  • Drizzle of honey
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon and / or nutmeg

Method:

  1. Blitz all ingredients in a blender until combined.
  • Tip: Ensure milk is cold and in hot weather can include a few ice cubes in the blitzing process!
