This smoothie is forever popular with the kids and probably my most requested smoothie recipe of all time! It's a great source of fibre, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and good fats. All essential nutrients to help power your kids through a school day.
2 medjool dates (pitted, soak first in hot water for around 10 mins to soften)
1 handful of raw cashews (I omit these if sending to school as most schools are "Nut Free" zones/
1 tablespoon of drinking chocolate
1 tablespoon of rolled oats
1/8 tsp peppermint essence
Milk up to the 700ml mark of your blender
Blitz and serve. Makes 3 small smoothies.
