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