Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Cup  unsweetened almond milk
  • bananas, frozen
  • dates, pitted
  • 3  Tablespoons  almond butter, such as Justin’s® Maple Almond Butter
  • 1/2  Cup  old fashioned oats
  • 1/2  Cup  ice (optional)

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

This is what we call heaven in a glass. If it were fine wine, we could say it has a distinct nuttiness with notes of sweet maple and date with an underlying oatiness that provides a wonderfully thick texture and mouth-feel. It’s quite the sophisticated smoothie.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
