Since being pregnant, I have been recommended to eat more dates, especially in my third trimester. There is lot of research on this and some facts that are really interesting but please do your own research and decide for yourself. There is no known disadvantage of eating more dates, so if that is not a reason to try these recipes I am not sure what is 💁🏼‍♀️🤣🧋🌰🤰

💕Morning smoothie (I have this most days) 🧋

(Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free)


I have been trying to keep up with my morning smoothies through my pregnancy as I find it a quick and easy way to get good nutrition into my body. If I am too nauseous I even have it later on in the day as you can just pop it in the fridge. With this recipe you can make it either sweet and have as a treat or less so for your morning smoothie.


▪️2 dates

▪️1/4 banana or 1/2 for more sweetness

▪️1 tbsp chia seeds

▪️1 tbsp flaxseed

▪️250ml almond milk

▪️1 cup frozen blueberries

▪️1 handful of spinach

▪️1/2 tsp cinnamon


1️⃣ Simply put all the the ingredients in a blender and blend them together.

2️⃣ Pour into your glass. Enjoy!


Tips:

1️⃣ I love using frozen fruit as it gives it that nice coolness straight away.

2️⃣ You can leave the banana out all together if you rather it not be too sweet.


Date smoothie perfect for breakfast or as a snack
