DF, WF, SF, GF, VG
1/3 cup Cashew nuts
4 Medjool dates
2 tbsp Chia seeds
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Cups Oat Milk
Blend… thats all.
So what good are all these yummy ingredients?
Banana – Packed full of potassium, bananas decreases the risk of high blood pressure, increases strength and reduces stress.
Cashew nuts – Lower in saturated fats then their other nutty friends, these babies contain 5g of Protein per ounce and are an excellent source of magnesium.
Medjool Dates – This important fruit is used in Arab countries after breaking fast for Ramadan, as just a handful of dates immediately restores the bodies energy levels.
Chia Seeds – Not only are these little power houses packed with Omega-3’s; One serving of these super-seeds contains as much calcium as 1/2 glass of milk, two times the fiber of a cup of oatmeal and two times the magnesium of a cup of spinach. Time to get to know Chia?- We think so!
Cinnamon – Regulates blood sugar levels, boosting the metabolism, stabilizing energy levels and mood.
Oat Milk – A great health-conscious dairy-free alternative to milk, high in natural iron and fiber, low in fats and sugars.
If serving for breakfast top with a sprinkle of your favorite granola, muesli or seed mix for an extra crunchy element.
