Dates & Nuts Banana Smoothie || Delicious and energetic dates & nuts banana smoothie

 Dates & Nuts Banana smoothie is very tasty and energetic drink which is very creamy and delicious in taste. It is very easy to prepare and gives instant energy. This is my super drink which I always loves to have it after my walk, exercises. It is also perfect to have as simple breakfast in busy days, instead of giving your kids store bought energy powder with milk. Just give this dates & nuts banana smoothie before starting their evening studies. It gives good energy and filling too for them. I used soaked almonds and watermelon seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins to prepare this smoothie, you can also soak cashew nuts in it if you are planning to give kids. You can use any variety banana, today chakkarakeli banana variety, this is very sweet banana with good smooth flesh, it is widely available in Coastal Andhra. Do checked out banana sheera recipe to get more information about red banana. As many of you I d't like the flavors of melon & pumpkin seeds in smoothie, so I added green cardamom. Do not use these seeds in more quantity, smoothie taste will change. Add seeds & nuts according to your taste and availability. I have other simple dates banana smoothie recipe in my blog do check out..
