  • 5 Tunisian Dates, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 Tsp Cocoa Powder
  • 5-6 Tbsp Hot Water
  • 1-1/4 Cups Cold Skimmed Milk
  • Crushed Ice, as needed
  • Add the chopped dates and flaxseed meal to a small bowl.
  • Pour the hot water into the bowl and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Slice the bananas and add to the blender along with cocoa, crushed ice, cold milk and date-flaxseed mixture.
  • Blend until the mixture is frothy.
