Cooking Tips and Considerations For Making This Vegan Smoothie
If you need to make a substitution for the dates, you can try using raisins or dried apricots. Dates are really great though because they have a ton of natural sweetness inherent in them which allows you to avoid having to include added sugar
I prefer old-fashioned oats or quick oats in this recipe. Avoid steel-cut oats as they will be a bit too chewy
As for the oats, feel free to use quick-cooking oats or even oat bran if that's what you have on hand. Just be sure to adjust the measurement accordingly.
If you're not a fan of almond milk, any other type of plant-based milk will work just fine.
If you find that it's too thick, simply add more liquid until it reaches your desired consistency. And if it's too sweet for your taste, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Dates are a good source of dietary fiber, which is important for keeping the digestive system healthy. They're also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and iron. Plus, they contain natural sugars that can give you a boost of energy. So if you're looking for a healthy and delicious way to start your day, be sure to add dates to your smoothie!
Oats are a great source of fiber, which is important for keeping the digestive system healthy. They're also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and iron. Plus, they contain soluble fiber.
Almond milk is a good alternative to cow's milk for those who are lactose intolerant or have allergies. It's also a good source of calcium and vitamin D, which are important for bone health.
Bananas are a good source of dietary fiber, which is important for keeping the digestive system healthy. They're also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and iron.
Add a good protein powder if you need to use this healthy smoothie as a high protein post-workout recovery option. I'm more a fan of whey protein powder, but you'll have to be careful if you prefer to keep this true to a vegan diet. Almond butter or peanut butter are good sources of protein as well.
Other add-ins to consider for protein and/or nutritionally enhanced healthy vegan smoothies include chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
If you want a creamier smoothie greek yogurt helps. For a more indulgent smoothie go with cacao nibs combo with the yogurt.
For a more refreshing element, I'll add some coconut water.
