Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pour the boiling water over the Medjool dates. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Put the dates and water into a food processor and blend into a smooth date paste. You will need to scrape down the sides of the processor with a spatula several times because the dates will stick to the sides. Set the date paste aside and clean your food processor.
  • Tip: I almost always make extra date paste because it is easier to blend a larger batch of dates. The extra date puree is a great way to naturally sweeten recipes without added sugar.
  • Place the cottage cheese, cold water, ice, blueberries, peaches, lavender, and date paste into a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Blend a little longer than you typically might for a smoothie to ensure the cottage cheese and ice are thoroughly blended in. Enjoy!

Notes

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). At over 300 calories per serving, this snack edges into meal territory. To lighten things up, try using low-fat cottage cheese rather than 6%. You could also swap the pureed dates for stevia, as I do when I make low-carb smoothies.
Each serving of this smoothie is a generous two cups. I don’t typically like cutting serving sizes without making other changes that will help you feel full. However, in this case, I think cutting the serving in half (i.e., one-cup servings) is another option that will work for a lower-calorie snack.
Nutrition information is for one serving of the recipe.
