My breakfast date smoothie

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.

My banana/dates smoothie ingredients

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!
