BANANA DATE SMOOTHIE

I love starting my day with this Banana Date Smoothie.

It is rich, creamy and tastes like a treat while still offering you a lot of healthy ingredients to start your day.

You only need 5 ingredients to create this smoothie so it not only tastes great but it is so easy to throw together before work or in the afternoon.

Stonyfield Greek Yogurt, milk, a frozen banana, 4 pitted dates and a scoop of Healthy Skoop’s Super Skoop All-in-One Nutritional Shake.

With this smoothie you are getting protein, calcium, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3s.

I love making a double batch of this smoothie to share with the kiddos.

They go crazy for it!

If are you aren’t familiar with Healthy Scoop let me tell you a little bit about them.

Their Healthy Skoop’s Super Skoop All-in-One Nutritional Shake that I used in this smoothie is USDA Organic, gluten-free, soy-free, whey-free, dairy-free and Non-GMO.

Their all-in-one nutritional shake has 20 grams of organic brown rice, pea, and hemp come together to create a complete protein with a complete amino acid profile.  

Each serving touts the antioxidant equivalent of four cups of organic fruits and veggies, plus Omega-3s from plant sources promote heart health and may help regulate cholesterol.

 It also offers 50% of your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals from whole foods.

Healthy Skoop takes nutrition seriously and donates 3% of every product purchase to Project Produce, which gives grants of $2,500 to help qualified schools put more fresh produce in lunch lines and encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. 

Project Produce has assisted 51 schools in 21 states and over 24,000 students have benefited from the program to date. I love supporting organizations that are doing such great work!

CAN I MEAL PREP SMOOTHIES?

Yes! It is such a lifesaver to have everything portioned out ahead of time.

I will use mason jars or ziplock bags to store the ingredients in.

Portion the ingredients and freeze individually.

When you are ready to make the smoothie pull the bag out and add it to the blender.

Then add the milk, Greek yogurt, honey and any additional add-in ingredients and blend.

You have a healthy breakfast or snack!

OTHER OPTIONS TO ADD TO SMOOTHIES:

CHIA SEEDS: Chia seeds are optional but add antioxidants, protein and fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

HEMP SEEDS: Do you use hemp seeds? They are great in smoothies and they are packed with so much power. 1 Tablespoon of those small seeds is 5 grams of protein.

That will help keep you feeling full and give you the energy you need. I suggest adding it to your smoothies if you have it on hand!

NUT BUTTER: Nut butters are another great way to add protein and help the texture of the smoothie.

I find if my smoothie is too thin that adding a few Tablespoons or almond of peanut butter will help thicken it. 

SPIRULINA: Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. One Tablespoon of spirulina  of dried spirulina powder contains protein, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B3, copper and iron.

This is another powerhouse ingredient you can add.

OATS: You might be thinking – oats? And yes, they are a great addition to smoothies. They will thicken it some but I actually like it. You can dump rolled oats straight into the blender. They help keep you full and give you energy thanks to the fiber!

PROTEIN POWDER: If you are looking to up your protein in-take, for example after workouts, try protein powder. There are a lot of varieties in the stores now and some are even flavored.
