I created this smoothie for breakfast this morning, and we both thought it was delicious and perfect for Fall.

Vanilla Spice Smoothie

1 1/2 c. milk (I used almond milk)

3 pitted dates (or another sweetener of your choice)

2 ripe bananas

2 cups ice

1/3 c. raw cashews

1/3 c. raw almonds

1/4 – 1/2 t. vanilla extract (depends on your tastes)

Dash of cinnamon

Dash of nutmeg

Strawberry Shake version:

Omit the cinnamon and nutmeg

Add 1 1/2 c. frozen strawberries

Add a few more dates or 2 T. maple syrup

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie version:

I haven’t actually tried this yet, but I am sure it will be delicious!  I’ll update the post with instructions soon . . .


Blend and enjoy!
