This smoothie is a meal in itself. Great breakfast filled with the goodness of lemon juice, bananas and dates. This is our first recipe with dates and I realized how versatile this fruit is when I put it into a drink. When I lived in the Middle East, this delicious fruit was the first thing eaten by Muslims to break their fasts during the month of Ramadan. Makes sense - it is filled with fiber, minerals and vitamins that help boost our immunity, maintain digestion and promote weight loss. In this recipe, the lemon and date combination is a great balance between sweet and sour and the banana gives a smooth consistency. Enjoy this nutrient packed morning kick-start to your day!

Ingredients

6-8 large soft dates (pitted)
1/4 cup water
2 bananas
½ lemon (juiced)

Instructions

  1. In a blender, blend together the dates, water and lemon juice until a smooth consistency is formed.
  2. Add the bananas and ice (optional) and blend again for 2 minutes until the smoothie is well combined.
  3. If you haven’t added ice before, you can drop a few cubes into a glass and pour the smoothie on top before you serve.
