Here is another great smoothie recipe! The addition of the walnuts, dates, and spices gives my usual Banana Protein Shake a new twist in flavor.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 tbsp walnuts
- 2 dates
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp allspice
- Optional: 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Sunwarrior)
- Optional: 1 tsp maca powder
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy!
I bet if you add 2-4 tbsp of oats, this smoothie would be even thicker, giving it a really good banana bread flavor and texture. I may have to try that next time! You can also add a handful of spinach to make a green smoothie!
