This chilled smoothie take on a cappuccino is sweetened with dates, and the rolled oats keeps you fuller for longer.
Serves : 1
3-5 soft dates, pitted
2 teaspoons cacao powder
3 tablespoons rolled oats (choose certified gluten-free if allergic)
250ml (1/2 fl oz / 1 cup) unsweetened plant milk
1-2 shots espresso (approximately 2-4 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon cold-pressed coconut oil
2 ice cubes
Put the ingredients in a blender and blast on a high speed until smooth.
Taste and adjust the sweetness and coffee flavour to your liking by adding dates, espresso or milk. Pour into one medium-size glass or cup and enjoy straight away. Stir in a splash of extra plant milk, if you fancy it.
