Here’s one of my favourite blends that works in just about any blender. The dates add sweetness; feel free to omit or use an alternative sweetener like honey, maple syrup or stevia.

Yields 1


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup spinach
  • a few sprigs of fresh mint
  • 2 soft dates (or more to taste)
  • a spoonful of cashew butter or other nut butter
  • a few ice cubes
  • water, nut milk or coconut water


  1. Combine everything in the blender with enough liquid to blend and blitz until smooth.
