  1. Had this in Dubia. You can cut the calories by using 2 dates, one banana, and almond milk. I have one every day. High in minerals.
  2. This was really awesome. I was at a lost what to do with these dates I purchased in bulk. Now I know! It is also a great substitute for cereal for my picky toddler.
  3. Yummy!! DD2 (5 months) even liked it! I used Balkan yogurt, water to be healthier & because of lactose intolerance, date syrup to taste, the bananas & ice.
  4. OH my gosh, this is just wonderful!!!!! So rich and creamy tasting and so easy to fix. I'll be having this often and I highly recommend. Thank you so much for sharing.
  5. This is fantastic!! It seems so rich and decadent--yet it's surprisingly low in fat; and the banana-date combination is totally delicious! I scaled the recipe down to one serving, used frozen banana slices, and omitted the ice cubes. Mmmmmmm!! The only thing that could make this smoothie better is to be in Laguna Beach while drinking it! :) Thanks for a great recipe, Queen uh Cuisine!!


<p>I live in Northern California in the town of Placerville. It's a one hour drive East to Lake Tahoe or one hour West to our State Capitol, Sacramento. Great location. <br /> I have been overdue for an update!!! 1/10 <br /> My Boy's are doing well. Nick is still in Australia and Jon is still here at home. They both graduated high school last year. I hope NIck will come to the US for college, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo!!! (we'll see) He may stay down under for college :( <br />Jon is working and figuring out life....he plans on being an entrepreneur im sure. <br />We have two dogs, Jewel and Bob both adopted from the local shelter. They love each other. <br />I love spring and fall the most and love being outdoors. <br />My Boss passed away last year :( I miss him soooo much. <br />This last year has been very hard for me. <br />I am doing better now. <br />Hoping 2010 brings lots of health and happiness to all :) <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><a href= target=_blank> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
