(LFRV compliant!) Oh my!!! I have had this two days in a row and I don't think I see an end in sight - sooooo delicious!! This is so creamy, rich, and so much better than any mint chocolate ice cream I have had (mainly because I can have so much without feeling awful afterwards!!). I use lady finger bananas which are much smaller than normal bananas...I'm not exactly sure how many this would be equal to so I had to use cups...sorry if that causes any difficulties. You may add more mint or carob depending on your tastes - this was just enough to get the flavors for me without wasting. Also I put this down for 2 servings but I drink the whole thing and feel amazingly energized but I guess you could share if you like :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First blend the dates and water (once you put frozen bananas in those dates get really cold & hard to blend so work them out first).
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend up. You may need to add more water to get things moving, thats fine it won't take away any flavor. Garnish with a mint leaf if you like but mine is usually gone before I would even have time for this. Enjoy!

Just be sure to follow direction to soak dates first, whether in water or other liquid. Then you're in for a real doozy of a smoothie. Mmmmmmmmm.... *dreamy lip-licking*

This is delicious and easy to make! I was afraid that the flavors of the dates and bananas would be overpowering, but they really complemented the carob powder, giving it a rich, chocolaty flavor. I have to admit that I used soy milk instead of water, which isn't raw, but made it even "creamier." I found that one large banana was enough. I will definitely make this again.

Yum yum, this is lovely. I cheated and used dibis (date syrup) because I wanted it right away! But I will definitely make this again as posted. I used fresh mint from the garden.
