Bali Banana Date Smoothie Recipe
I’m thrilled to guest post on Skinnytaste today (thank you, Gina!), and I’m so honored to be the nutrition expert in the upcoming Skinnytaste cookbook. Gina poured her generous heart into this beautiful book and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!
So I’m a huge fan of green smoothies, in fact I drink a Skinny Green Monster at least a few times a week. But on a recent trip to Bali I discovered a banana smoothie that just blew me away.
The simple combo of banana, dates, yogurt, honey, ice, and
(surprise!) cinnamon, makes a refreshing and tasty concoction,
especially for sipping on steamy days. I drank one of these delicious
smoothies every morning before heading to the pool or biking thru the
1/2 ripe medium banana
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/2 tbsp honey
1 pitted date, chopped
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 ice cubes
Blend banana, yogurt, milk and honey until smooth. Add dates, cinnamon, and ice. Blend for 3 minutes more.
