Author Notes

There are many ways in which you can use our wonderful halva spreads -- be it smeared on toast for breakfast, with your fruit for a nutritious mid-day snack, alongside your favorite cheese as an appetizer, or spooned straight from the jar to satisfy your sweet tooth.

However, this summer I found myself enjoying Brooklyn Sesame halva spreads in smoothies. They make a great on-the-go breakfast on a hot summer day or a refreshing afternoon snack. My favorite is a "Tropical Desert” smoothie -- it is as delicious and refreshing as it sounds! —BrooklynSesame

What You'll Need
  • 4 bananas
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 3 tablespoons Brooklyn Seasame Halva Spread with Toasted Coconut
  • 2 cups 2% organic milk (or almond or soy milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom (optional)
  1. Slice bananas and freeze them overnight.
  2. Cut the dates into smaller pieces, then, in a blender, combine the dates with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth -- about 30 seconds. Serve in a tall glass with a straw, top with a pinch of cardamom, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Being smoothie, healthy stuff and deliciousness fanatic, this recipe is something out of this world! Have never ever had anything this awesome and amazing. I did my first one on Monday, with Pistachio Halva Brooklyn Sesame, and i cannot get enough of it. It became my breakfast, lunch and dinner. For someone who is extremely active and works out a lot, I can give this smoothie billions points as it provides necessary energy that lasts forever, doesn't make you feel full during work out, and is full of healthy ingredients. Everyone must try it!
