Prep Time:12 mins
This smoothie is breakfast in a glass! In spite of there being no dairy in this fresh fruit smoothie it is really thick and creamy thanks to the lovely gluten-free oats. They also provide a low GI release of energy and I find this is a very yummy way to start the day. If it's sunny I add a handful or two of ice to make it extra cool. If you're allergic to almonds use tahini, or a nut-b*tter that is safe for you in place of the almond-b*tter. You can make your own nut-b*tter by following my recipe for D.I.Y almond-b*tter here. Or you can buy it from amazon in small jars or huge ones!
- 4 dates (I use dried dates which I soak for about 30 mins before making the smoothie)
- 1 banana broken up
- 1 mango peeled and stoned
- 5 cm³ ginger root*
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon*
- 1 Tbs almond-b*tter
- 3 Tbs gluten-free oats
- ¾ C m!lk alternative (I use almond m!lk)
- ½ C water (more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothie)
Bung all your ingredients into your blender and blitz.
Pour out into your fave glass and enjoy this delicious and nutritious fresh creamy smoothie.
*please feel free to reduce the amount of ginger root and cinnamon if you want - I know everyone doesn't adore these two spicy ingredients as much as we do!
