I don’t know why I’ve been craving bananas and dates these last few days (yeah, they’re really good for me and the baby, but they are all I want to eat!)
I wouldn’t call this a smoothie, more like a thick milk.
Since we’ve had a small shortage of raw almonds in the market, I gave in and used cow’s milk. I’m sure it would have been tastier with nut milk though.
You can also add cinnamon if you like, but I forgot.
This filled me right up and baby was even bouncier (is that a word?) after I finished. I guess she liked it too.
This is how I did it because my blender is a tad on the weak side. If you got a Vitamix, you can just throw it all in and enjoy it faster.
