Date Tahini Smoothie

It’s been a bit of a hectic week on our boat. I don’t know how it’s time for my weekly post already. Time is flying by so fast these days. We’ve had family visiting, property viewings and other general day to day life goings on.

Charlie has been working so hard (and so much) since the autumn, setting up his new business venture, Dreamcatcher Cabins, (if you want to attend a festival in the UK in style, check these out because they are awesome and will make your weekend super luxurious and definitely one to remember!) Sometimes I feel like we are strangers passing in the night, a quick half an hour over dinner and then bed, before the dawn comes around and we rush off again to our separate work lives.

We took this morning off to have a stroll through the little village where we are moored at the moment, grab a coffee and some cake, then took a long afternoon walk along the canal. Life can get so busy sometimes and it’s important to take time out, catch up with each other, and relax for a few hours.

Date and Tahini Smoothie

I know, I know, I did a tahini post last week! I’m sorry! I’m definitely not sorry actually. I love the stuff. Not only is it a great source of calcium and vitamins, it’s a good source of magnesium and it adds protein to dishes. I love that you can use it in pretty much anything and it perks it up; a nice lemon salad dressing, creamy spreads, brownies, but especially smoothies. THIS SMOOTHIE.

Use any milk you wish, I used almond as it’s my favourite. Add more bananas / tahini if you want. Add oats to bulk it out even more. Go crazy.

  1. Oh yes, love the idea of this. I’ve been experimenting with smoothies recently, mostly with great success. Using nut/seed butters is on my list, but I haven’t got there yet. I really like the simplicity of this one as well as the flavours.

  2. I don’t blame you for sharing another tahini recipe- tahini is awesome and I love it in sweet and savoury dishes. Lately I’ve been drizzling it over my salads with some lemon juice. So tasty! I can’t wait to try this smoothie!

  3. oh my goodness, that sounds delicious! I’ve been obsessed with tahini lately, so I’ll have to try this soon!

Thank You! I love hearing from you all.
