Description

Ingredients:

3/4 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk

3 medjool dates, preferably fresh (about 1 1/2 ounces) pitted and torn into 1/2 inch pieces

2 tablespoons tahini

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom, plus more for garnish

1 frozen banana, cut into 1/2 inch chunks

Pinch of salt

 

Directions:

Combine almond milk, dates, and tahini in a blender. Pulse to break up the dates and then blend on high until a smooth paste forms, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed. Flecks of date should be visible, but the mixture should be smooth.

Add the cardamom, banana, and salt to the blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Garnish with more ground cardamom and serve immediately.
