Power Berry Smoothie

If you had read the other post about fat reducing foods, then you know why is this post!

What you need?

Any berry - 2 cups (I use combo of strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and some mixed berries, all frozen since we cannot get fresh all the time)
Ripe Bananas-2
Dates - 10-12
Fig - 6
cinnamon-1/2 tsp
flax meal-3 tbsp
salt-1/8 tsp (pinch)
Walnuts-10
or
Almonds (soaked)-10 or even almond powder.
quick rolled oats - 1 cup



Now, How to make?

I take out required quantity of berries from freezer and put it in the fridge the before night.

Soak dates and Fig in hot water. Soak Walnuts or almonds and oats in hot water. Let them soak for atleast 30 mins. Check for date pits before blending. Blender blade will break if blended with pits.

Add all the ingredients together and blend it with blender. Add water to adjust consistency. You can blend it as soft as you want. It is ready! Can there be any simple recipe than this? We love this and I usually make it on the weekends and we have it with home made bread as weekend breakfast.

It makes that special really healthy dessert as well! You can make a dark chocolate topping to make it as a memorable dessert too!
