Peanutbutter, Banana and Date Smoothie

Last year I joined this small group of Muslim food bloggers on facebook and met some lovely ladies from different countries, all sharing the same love for cooking and food.  To make  it more fun and entertaining and gain more knowledge  , they have started different challenges for each month. For this  month's challenge they asked to make something using dates. Everyone in my family likes dates, the boys love to snack on  them . Dates are packed with so many goodness , my mom has made it a habit of hers to eat 7 dates  early morning on an empty stomach. For this challenge I have the perfect recipe, a Date , Banana and peanut butter smoothie!!

 I  love smoothies and even the boys enjoy them for their mid day snack time, when I make it.
   So I came up with this combination of bananas, dates and peanut butter. It was quite rich , hubby thought it was a bit too sweet cos the first time I made it I used a little dark brown sugar to  sweeten and give a caramel flavour. Why not give it a try and let me know what you think..

Recipe : Peanut Butter , Date and Peanut Butter Smoothie 

100g dates, pitted and soaked in 1/2  cup hot water for 10 minutes.
2 small bananas ( or 1 large one)
1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2- 3 cups milk ( depends on how thick you want it)
1 tbsp quick cooking oats ( optional)
honey or 2 tsp dark brown sugar for extra sweetness ( optional)

First, soak the dates and then add everything ,  along with the water  the dates were soaking in as it will have loads of flavour in it as well, in to a blender.  Start with 2 cups of milk , blend and then , taste add more milk and adjust sweetness to your liking.

Best consumed within two days .
