  • Serves 2
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted, soaked
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 2 teaspoons soaked chia seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoons water or coconut milk
In This Recipe
  1. First, soak your pitted dates in enough water to cover. Soak from 30 minutes to overnight, whichever is easiest for you.
  2. When you remove your soaked pitted dates from the water, save a few tablespoons of it and soak your chia seeds while you assemble and measure everything.
  3. Put your ingredients into a blender.
  4. Whiz on high until smooth.
  5. The last ingredient of coconut milk or water is to get the smoothie to a drinkable consistency, and how much may vary on how much water is in your dates and chia, etc. Just slowly add enough liquid to make it the consistency you like.
  6. This will make 2 smoothies, or one big pint size one just for you.
