cosy spiced smoothie

This scummy smoothie is full of delicious spices which make it cosy somehow! Perfect for wintery days when you need a hit of fresh fruit and fancy a little spiced warmth to snuggle up with. I add bee pollen as it's sooooo good for us, but if you don't use it don't worry, if you fancy some you can buy it online. If I am making this smoothie for myself I add almond b*tter, the almond b*tter just gives it an added depth and earthiness. But sometimes I make it without the tree nut butter and it tastes just as great, maybe even a little fresher! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 150g blueberries
  • 5 dates
  • 1 C m!lk alternative (we use koko)
  • 1 Tbs almond b*tter
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp bee pollen**
  • handful of ice
  • freshly grated nutmeg

Method:

  1. Pop all the ingredients into your liquidiser and blitz until a lovely thick smoothie is produced. 

  2. Pour into your favourite glass and grate a load of fresh nutmeg over the top. Enjoy! 

Notes:

*If you are allergic to tree-nuts just miss out the almond b*tter, or replace with a ground-nut or tahini (made from sesame seeds).

**If you don't have any bee pollen just skip it - it doesn't add to the flavour only to the nutritional value of this smoothie. If you do fancy trying it you can buy it online here!
