Date milk or Caramel Smoothie

This is a remarkably simple recipe that results in a delicious and satisfying healthy drink. It was devised by Fruitarian Dancer. Take a look at her Youtube video called “The best coffee and milk replacement

However I feel that this basic recipe is enhanced by mixing/diluting it with Soya or any nut milk as outlined below as it seems to prevent the water and dates from separating over time whilst giving it a creamier consistency. It also reduces the sweetness that for me is a little too over powering in the original date and water combination.

Ingredients:

10 Barhee dates – pittedIMG_1347
1 cup of water
1 or 2 cups of Soya or Nut milk depending on how sweet you want it.

Method:

Place all in a high powered blender, food processor or Thermomix and blend for 90 seconds at full speed.

You can make this with Medjool dates but I find, as Sarah states in her video, that Barhee dates give a better flavour. More caramel than date.
