See what I did there *wink* *wink* – delicious and ever so literally a simple combo of coffee and dates.
I am very partial to the idea of coffee in a smoothie – the ultimate on-the-go option combining my morning cuppa with my breakfast, that, and DATES… just delicious little gems of sweetness – yes please!
To soften the dates so they blend into my smoothie well, I roughly chop them and pop them in the hot coffee while it cools a little. In the mean time I throw together my packed lunch…or get dressed… or put on make-up – I am NOT a morning person, I leave getting up to the the very last second and then do everything at breakneck speed and/or all at the same time. This kind of fruity-caffeine combo is right up my street for weekday mornings.
- 100 ml strong coffee, cooled (see note)
- 4 pitted dates
- 100 ml milk
- 1 small banana,frozen
- 1-2 drops vanilla extract
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blitz to desired consistency.
