Banana Date Smoothie

Banana Date Smoothie

This smoothie is one of my favourites because I’m a sucker for bananas. I like to use extra-ripe bananas to create a creamier texture and to get a stronger flavour. The dates are rich in vitamins and minerals like potassium and magnesium while making the smoothie oh, so sweet! Bananas are another excellent source of potassium and are a perfect morning-coffee substitution (energy boost!!). Adding cinnamon in this recipe is a perfect way to get in an extra superfood for the day by possibly reducing inflammation. I like to drink this smoothie as a mid-morning/afternoon snack, or as a dessert after a light dinner.
