For Your Bohemian Holiday of Choice

Banana Date Smoothie (or Soft-serve Ice "Cream")

Add to Vitamix or blender:
  • 1 organic banana
  • 2 soaked organic dates (plus 1/4 cup soaking water from dates)
  • 8 oz of frozen organic coconut mylk*
  • 1 TBS of raw organic honey or organic maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp of organic pure vanilla extract or organic vanilla bean seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp of organic almond extract (optional)
Note: (double for 2 or more servings)

*Buy frozen bags of coconut mylk or pour a can of organic coconut mylk into a zip-lock bag and freeze flat on a tray, so that it can be easily broke into pieces.

Soak dates for a couple of hours or overnight.

Peel the banana.

Add everything to the Vitamix and blend until smooth. Add extra clean source water for a smoothie.

Optional: Pour 1/2 the banana ice "cream" into chilled bowels, tip to keep it on one side of the dish. Add 1/2 tsp of carob powder and extra honey to remaining banana ice "cream" in the blender. (Do not over-flavor. Carob is quite strong. The color should be light mocha. ) Pour carob ice "cream" into other side of the dish. Make a yin-yan. Serve immediately or freeze for up to 20 minutes.
