Sweet, delicious, full of fiber and good for you beta-carotene that nourishes your skin, the largest organ of your body! Feel free to add a handful of baby spinach for an added boost, and top with some pecans if you feel so inclined.
This delicious smoothie is great for breakfast, dessert or as a clean and energizing pre or post workout snack.
With potassium from the bananas, iron, other minerals, natural fiber and sweetness from the dates, pumpkin, and flaxseeds, you have yourself a beautiful, nutritious, feel-good boost in a glass. The spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg are not only delicious, but they are beautiful spices that nourish your brain health, are antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, detoxifies the liver and kidneys, and overall immune strengthening.
Any non-dairy milk will do. Homemade is best…without adding those thickening agents or stabilizers as commercial brands do. To make your own nut or oat milk, simply soak your nuts, seeds or oats overnight, and blend with a dash of sweetener (maple syrup or 2 dates) and a pinch of sea salt.
