Makes 16 ounces (two 1-cup servings) | Ready in 3 minutes | Stores 4 days in fridge
3–5 Medjool dates, pitted
2 cups water
½ tablespoon almond butter
Chai spice (I use my Caffeine-free Chai Spice)<
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract or ¼ vanilla bean (optional)
- Add water to a small pot over medium-high heat. Add pitted dates. Once water is boiling transfer it to a blender.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a mug and enjoy.
If you start with hot water, you can simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy.
My preferred form of vanilla is the whole vanilla bean. With a high-powered blender, like the Vitamix or Blendtec, it will be completely blended. Without a high-powered blender, you may want to scoop out the center of the vanilla bean, or use vanilla powder or extract.
