|laying on tray ready for the freezer (that's the banana not me)|
I put the slices in the freezer for an hour or so, then placed them into a freezer bag so I could use them another day. No need of course to freeze if you are making the drink straightaway.
Here is my version of The Belle General super smoothie:
1 ripe banana sliced
5 or 6 "gourmet" dates
1/3 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup almond milk (or soy or rice or whatever takes your fancy)
1 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs oats
extra ground cinnamon
well, you know the drill. Blitz it all up in the blender, peoples! And throw on some extra cinnamon if you fancy. Add more milk if it is too thick for you.
|dates and banana- my nemeses!|
|all ready for blitzing|
|blitzed! and now for the drinking|
|here we go! mmm not too bad|
Obviously I will have to go back to Ballina to try this drink again at the cafe, as they have it just right. And I will keep trying to get my own perfect version till I get it right.
