dairy-free, über creamy smoothie

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! 

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Method:

  1. Bung all your ingredients into your blender and blitz. 

  2. Pour out into your fave glass and enjoy this delicious and nutritious fresh creamy smoothie.

Notes:

*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!
