Blueberry Almond Smoothie {with Dates!}

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 2 mins
  • Cook Time: 1 min
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup whole almonds, raw
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted
  • water

Instructions

  1. Soak the almonds in one cup of water overnight, or use boiling water 30-60 minutes ahead of making the smoothie. Discard the water when you’re ready to make the smoothie.
  2. Combine the soaked almonds, banana, blueberries, and dates together in a blender. Add 2/3 cup water to begin with, and more if needed to get things moving in the blender.
  3. Blend until smooth. I give this smoothie at least 1-minute extra blend time due to the almonds.

Notes

If you’re impatient and don’t want to soak the almonds, this recipe still works — just be aware that the texture will be slightly different {more grainy}.
