Welcome to day 2 of my Blogmas posts. I thought a recipe would go down well for today. I say a recipe, but that makes this super easy smoothie sound harder yo make than it is. Fear not it’s incredibly easy and tastes fantastic.
To me there is nothing more satisfying that the festive taste of an eggnog, it’s rich and oh so moreish and contains all the right spices that just scream christmas. However I can appreciate as much as the next that A) not everyone likes the idea of eggs in a drink and B) it’s fairly calorific as a drink, but hey it is christmas so a treat is ok. With all this in mind this version has all the taste but without the egg or refined sugar. I can’t (and won’t) be jumping on the clean wagon with this. There is still sugar in it- so you know every thing in moderation, but this can be vegan friendly, it’s all down to your choice of milk used.
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 dates or a dash of maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- Top up with milk of your choice ( almond works brilliantly)
Put all ingredients into your blender and blitz until well combined.
