Banana Dates Almond Smoothie

I have been addicted to smoothies. It is summer here in Australia. I am craving for smoothies, milkshakes, crushes, you name anything cold, I need it.. We have Boost juice bars where I frequently have dairy-free smoothies, but one of the trainers in the gym, Chantal said it’s not great for losing weight. So decided to make my own. Would never return to Boost ever again 🙂 Much healthier option with no sugar, yet sweet. Also, read somewhere that having something green in the morning is very good. So in goes spinach almost everyday 🙂

Ingredients

  • Banana- 1 ripe
  • Dates- 3 for sweetness – great source of iron too
  • Almond meal [Powdered Almonds] – 1 tsp
  • Spinach – 1/2 handful
  • Chia seeds -1 tsp
  • Dietary fibre – 1 tsp
  • Soy milk – enough to blend into a thick smoothie

Method

  • Blend them all together and top with a tsp of almond meal
