Smoothie- Carob Banana

I make smoothie variations all the time, but today this one was particularly delicious.


  • Blender
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons


  • Freshly prepared plain almond milk- 2 cups
  • Medjool Dates- 8
  • Banana, ripe & medium sized - 1,
  • Cinnamon, ground- 1/8 tsp
  • Nutmeg, ground- 1/8 tsp
  • Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
  • Carob powder- 1 heaping Tbsp

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend thoroughly.  I prefer room temperature smoothies but if you prefer cooler smoothies you can use almond milk made with cold water and/or sliced frozen banana.  This will also help compensate for any heating that results from the blending, especially if you use a high powered Vita Mix type of blender.

Yield: Two 14 oz servings.

Wow! I just made something like that about a week ago at an evening smoothie party. Except instead of the almond milk, we used orange juice, and a bit more banana rather than medjool dates. All spices and carob you mentioned, we used in about the same quantities.

We called it "Chocolate Orange", because it tasted almost exactly like those orange-flavored chocolates that come in the shape of an orange.

Sounds delicious! Yours is also a lower fat version. I'll try it sometime. Thanks!
