One of my favourite ever smoothie recipes is a banana-date one, which makes a perfect breakfast drink as it is quite filling. I also often have it for iftar during Ramadan as bananas and dates are both very easily digested by the body and quickly replenish it after a day of fasting.
Date & banana smoothie (for 2 glasses)
- 2 ripe Bananas
- 4-5 Medjoul dates (Medjoul are great because they are sweet and fleshy)
- 1 tablespoon of almonds ( I grind them separately as my blender is not powerful enough, or you can just add almond powder)
- 2 large cups of oat milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
- 2 big tablespoons of porridge oats or greek yoghurt for extra protein
- a teaspoon of cinnamon
Cut the bananas into pieces and remove the stone and skin from the dates.
Blend all the ingredients together. Chill. Drink!
