1 cup frozen fruit (I used strawberries)
2 pitted dates
1 cup non-dairy milk (I like this brand of almond milk.)
2 tablespoons nut butter
1 serving Vanilla Chai Protein Powder
Sliced fruit, granola, seeds or nuts, and/or cinnamon for topping, optional.
Add the non-dairy milk, banana, frozen fruit, dates, nut butter and protein powder in a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) and blend until smooth and creamy.
Divide the smoothie between two bowls.
Top with sliced banana, granola, seeds, and/or cinnamon, if desired.
You can use Medjool dates or Deglet Noor as long as they are soft (rather than super dried out). The number of dates you use will depend on the sweetness of your protein powder and personal preference.
Nut-free? Easy. Try using a non-dairy milk like rice or oat milk. Instead of nut butter, use a seed butter.
