Banana Date Smoothie & Oatmeal

This recipe started off as me making the kiddos’ food which is funny because often they are eating what we make for us. But as I was making this (and tasted it!) I really wanted some too 🙂

So the babies had the oatmeal version and I had the smoothies (although I am sure they and I would have loved both!)

Banana Date Smoothie & Oatmeal

  • 10 or so dried dates (I steamed them to make them extra soft, but not really necesary)
  • 3 bananas
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of almond milk (less for oatmeal, more for smoothie)

Super simple, just blend and either combine with cooked oatmeal or add extra almond milk for a smoothie.

Super Fast Emergency Almond Milk

With traditional almond milk, you soak the almonds overnight and then blend and strain the next day. (not hard but not instant) We were all out of almond milk and my kiddos have a new LOVE for Chia Pudding (Banana Date Chia Pudding) so I needed to fix some up Fast!! This was so delicious! We were so happy that there was extra for us as well 🙂

This really helped me out in a pinch but it is something you can make all the time and so much better than almond milk from a carton!!
