I love this recipe and like to pulse-blend an additional bit of apples and dates and chew on them as I’m drinking my shake for a little more of the “real deal” as well as to aid in digestion!
1 single serving of vanilla meal replacement shake
4-6 dates (pitted)
1 Granny Smith apple cut and seeded (any will do, but Granny Smiths are the best in my opinion)
10-12 oz. water or almond milk (almond milk makes it even creamier)
dash or two of sea salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla (optional, but I like the EXTRA vanilla flavor)
Blend the dates with about half of the liquid until well blended.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Add ice if desired although, I prefer mine more on the room temperature side!
Don’t forget that you can also pulse chop some apple and dates for yummy “chewies” in your shake!
Did you know? Granny Smith apples (the green ones) are great antioxidants, high in soluble fiber, help to regulate your blood sugar, are great for your teeth, and are a great source of potassium which makes them good for heart rhythm!
