Scale

Ingredients

Smoothie

  • 1 banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 date, pitted and chopped
  • 1 scoop of Prozis plant-based protein powder
  • 1 tbsp tahini, or any other nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew …)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder (optional)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

Topping suggestions

  • Fresh seasonal fruits
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Tahini or peanut butter
  • Coconut chips
  • Puffed quinoa

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or a food processor and blend until perfectly smooth. This smoothie is thick and creamy. For a runnier consistency, add more milk or a splash of water.
  2. Serve the smoothie in a bowl and top with your favorite ingredients: fresh fruits, macadamia nuts, coconut chips, nut butter, puffed quinoa and a pinch of cinnamon.

Notes

  1. For this smoothie you can use both fresh or frozen banana. Frozen banana will make the smoothie very thick, with an ice-cream like consistency.
  2. You can replace the tahini with any nut butter of your choice like peanut, almond, cashew or even sunflower butter for a nut-free version.
  3. For a lighter smoothie, replace the coconut milk by almond or soy milk.
  4. The protein powder is optional but adds thickness to the smoothie, as well as an extra protein intake. If using protein powder, make sure to choose a good quality plant-based product, without added sugar and with a light flavor (plain or vanilla work well in this recipe).
