Creamy Dates and Coffee Smoothie

I am not very much a coffee person. In a coffee shop, I order only creamy cold coffee. But I like a hint of coffee flavour in cakes, chocolate and smoothies. So, I made this smoothie which has dates (I love them) and a hint of coffee. This sweet and creamy smoothie has an intriguing taste and the caffeine kick that’s just right for breakfast. It gives you the feel good energy that keeps you buzzing all morning.



Here is the recipe for 'Creamy Dates and Coffee Smoothie.'

Makes 2 glasses:

Ingredients:

8 dates pitted
1 tsp instant coffee.
2 tbsp fresh cream (optional, I did not use)
300 ml fresh milk.
2 tbsp sugar.

1. Soak the dates in warm water for 2-3 hours or better overnight.

2. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend for 1 minute until really smooth and creamy.
3. Pour into a glass and serve immediately.

I am sending this to the 'No Cook' Event at 'Seduce your tastebuds'.
