Third week of my ‘One Smoothie Recipe a week’ challenge and I have a very sweet and filling smoothie. This week’s fruit box had bananas and dates so I used these two as my main ingredients and added some coconut milk and yogurt. The recipe makes two glasses of smoothie, great for starting your day full of energy.
The main ingredients for this week’s smoothie are bananas, dates, coconut yogurt and coconut milk. I use two bananas for this recipe, one of them at room temperature and the other one is frozen. You can put it in the freezer chopped from the previous night or an hour before making the smoothie. Make sure that your dates don’t have any stones in them and then cut them in half before adding them to the blender. I also add some chia seeds for some extra fiber and goodness.
This smoothie is packed with nutrients. It’s detoxifying and great for digestion. Here is a breakdown of the most important nutrients that each ingredient offers:
- bananas: vitamin B6, B12, potassium and magnesium
- dates: vitamin A, B1, B2, B3 and B5, fiber
- coconut: protein, manganese, B vitamins
- chia seeds: fiber, proteins, omega-3 fatty acids
You could store it in the fridge for the next day in an airtight bottle or make it the previous night for a quick breakfast.
