5 Medjool organic dates
1/2 T Hemp Protein Powder
1 T almond butter (plain)
3-4 ripe organic bananas
2 C almond milk
2 or more cups ice
(Portions are approximate. Feel free to experiment depending on your own personal tastes & desires.)
Mix everything in a blender & enjoy!
*makes 2 large servings
One thing to note: I’ve tried this shake using a regular blender and while it’s still good, my Cuisinart had a difficult time pureeing the dates completely. For best results, I recommend using a VitaMix or similar blender for a really smooth and creamy shake.
This recipe was inspired by a shake which my girlfriend turned me onto. It was offered by a cute little cafe down in the Pacific Palisades. Drinking my version of it now brings back memories of warm, sunny afternoons filled with smiles and laughter.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Please let me know if you try it!
