Date and banana smoothies


I’ve been trying different combinations for smoothies lately, and some were more successful than others. I’ve found that bananas are an excellent base for a smoothie recipe – it allows for a lovely texture and pairs very well with caramel and chocolate. And dates and coffee.

This date and banana smoothie, with a hint of coffee, is quite rich and gives an excellent boost when most needed on those I-don’t-wanna-go-to-work mornings. I’m not able to guarantee less frustration, but staying awake will be a whole lot easier. 😉


4 chopped bananas

250 ml milk

125 ml plain yogurt

12 pitted dates

2 teaspoons instant coffee


1. Freeze the bananas for a few hours.

2. Add the frozen bananas, yogurt, dates, coffee and milk and whiz it up in a blender for a few minutes.

3. Serve ice cold.
