Bananza Date Smoothie

This smoothie reminds me of an horchata except this uses almond milk instead of white rice.  This icy and refreshing beverage will give you all your morning sugar cravings while ingesting fruit! Including a boost of fiber and potassium.

Servings 1

Ingredients:

1 cup almond milk, unsweetened*
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 banana*
6 pitted dates
2-3 ice cubes

Directions:

1. In a blender, add the dates, banana, cinnamon, and almond milk; make sure the dates are really pitted because the dates may have the pit in them. Blend until smooth. The blender might need a couple minutes to get the dates chopped.
2. Lastly, add the ice cubes. I discovered before that when I added everything at once, the ice cubes froze the dates and made it harder to blend. 

*Vanilla or chocolate almond milk, unsweetened
*Can freeze the bananas and use in smoothies as well
