This tastes awesome!
Good, healthy way to start the day. Like another reviewer, my blender didn't do a great job with the dates. Cocoa has so many health advantages, and this was an interesting spin on my morning smoothie. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Better than I expected...I was worried that it would taste "too healthy" but it was pretty good. I used a frozen banana, 2 medjool dates, 1 big handful of fresh spinach leaves, and used soy protein. It wasn't quite chocolatey enough for me and the color was an off putting green, so I added an additional tablespoon of cocoa powder. It made enough for 2 servings so next time I will cut the recipe in half. Even though I used a frozen banana, I still added ice to make it frostier. I will make again.
I did follow the recipe on this one although I was initially tempted to omit the spinach! I didn't, though, & was very surprised at how well it came out ~ VERY DELICIOUS, especially with the combo of banana, dates & OJ! But I did omit the ice, while using a frozen banana & some OJ that was ALMOST frozen, to give it all a good chill! Cheers for another great smoothie! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC]
A tasty and sneaky way to get leafy greens into the kiddos. Though I chopped them up, my blender didn't do a very good job with the dates. So I tried it again with no dates and two bananas. Not as sweet, obviously. But I was surprised at how much the dates had accentuated the cocoa. For the banana version, I doubled the cocoa. Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
Liked it! For how healthy this is, it tastes good! I didn't use protein powder but would next time to add a little more sweetness. Made for My 3 Chefs.
