Banana Date Coconut Smoothie

IMG_20140505_104823

This is perfect breakfast smoothie which can be used as a meal replacement, and also used in the place of your morning coffee! Bananas are a great source of energy, vitamin B6 and sugars, which will help give you that natural energy boost you need in the morning! They also help to lower cholesterol and toxins in the body. The dates in the shake are also a great source of natural protein, about 2.5 grams per 100 grams of dates. They are also rich in natural fibers, vitamins such as calcium, phosphorous and magnesium, as well as minerals such as potassium and iron.

So, let us begin!

You will need:

– 5 bananas (fresh or frozen. I like mine frozen because it gives a great refreshing, creamy texture)

– 20 pitted dates

– 4 cups coconut water (you can also use regular water)

– 1 cup regular water

– 1 tbsp. maca powder

– couple drops coconut extract

– couple drops sweet leaf natural sweetener (you can use vanilla, chocolate or coconut)

Pull all the ingredients in the blender, and blend until fully mixed! If the mixture is too thick, add more water. Top with some organic coconut flakes and cinnamon, then drink up! It’s sooo good!
