Ingredients in This Chocolate Smoothie with Tahini and Dates

My favorite smoothies are the ones that don’t need a lot of ingredients. Luckily, this smoothie recipe only requires seven simple ingredients

  1. Frozen Banana: If you’re not freezing your bananas before you use them in a smoothie, you’re missing out. Frozen banana adds sweetness, creaminess, and thickness to this smoothie.
  2. Dates: Adding dates to smoothies is THE BEST. If you feel like your smoothie is always missing something, try adding in a date or two. Dates add sweetness and depth of flavor.
  3. Cacao: This is where the chocolatey flavor comes from. I like cacao more than cocoa powder. Cacao generally has more fiber, minerals, and vitamins than other chocolate options. Cacao can even give you a boost of antioxidants and fiber.
  4. Tahini: Adding healthy fats to smoothies is a must. My favorite healthy-fats to add to smoothies include nut butter, tahini, and avocado.
  5. Biome Beauty Adapt: This real-food probiotic mix adds a heaping dose of probiotics. You also get the benefit of adaptogens and anti-inflammatory spices.
  6. Salt: okay… I know this ingredient might sound weird, but it’s not. Just like a chocolate chip cookie and chocolate cakes need a pinch of salt to round out the flavor, so does your smoothie.
  7. Plant-Based Milk: My favorites are soy milk and oat milk, but you can use any plant-based milk you like.

A Few Notes on This Recipe

It’s really easy to make smoothies if you have a stash of frozen bananas. When we grocery shop I like to get about 10 very ripe bananas to immediately freeze for smoothie ingredients.

Need an extra energy boost? Try subbing out half the plant-based milk in this recipe for coffee. You can try adding in cold-brew.

When I’m using this smoothie as a meal replacement, I also like to add in hemp seeds and organic pea protein. Smoothies don’t normally keep me full for long, but with a little extra protein it’s great.
