Vanilla Date Smoothie with Nutmeg and Orange INGREDIENTS 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder 1 large frozen banana 4-5 ice cubes or another frozen banana 3-4 medjool dates, pitted (soft and fresh is best)* 1 tablespoon flax seeds or chia seeds 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon orange zest, finely grated Pinch of ground nutmeg *If your dates are dry, soak them in warm water for a few minutes to soften before blending. They may be small in size, but dates are packed with high-fiber carbohydrates, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Combined with anti-inflammatory omega–3 fatty acids from flaxseeds, protein powder, and a twist of nutmeg and orange, this smoothie provides everything you need for a high-energy day. DIRECTIONS Step 1: Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about two minutes. Step 2: If needed, add an extra splash of almond milk if needed to reach your desired consistency. Pour and serve. Make it vegan: Use a plant protein powder (pea, hemp, or soy) instead of whey. Be creative: Experiment with dierent fruits and add-ins. Try adding coee and cinnamon or peanut butter. Adjust the amounts to create the thickness you desire. 2 Servings / Gluten-free / Vegetarian TO LEARN MORE, VISIT TEAMEXOS.COM.
