Recipe

This is a wonderful soother for frazzled nerves. Dates are high in fiber and are a source of calcium, magnesium, and folic acid. Rehydrate dry dates before using by covering them with boiling water and letting stand for 30 minutes.

Yield: Serves 1

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup (6 oz.) soymilk, almond milk, or rice milk
  • ½ cup (4 oz) plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 1/3 cup pitted dates, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small ripe banana, peeled and quartered
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Cover and process at high speed until smooth. Pour into a tall glass.

Variation

Pineapple Dream: Date Substitute pineapple juice for the almond milk, rice milk, or soymilk.
