The Benefits of Date Syrup
Adding a little bit of date syrup gives this smoothie just a touch of sweetness without adding refined sugar. Date syrup also contains potassium, magnesium, and calcium, plus beneficial antioxidants that make it the perfect natural sweetener if you're looking to sweeten things up a bit. It's one of the many ways you can sweeten your smoothie in a healthy way.
- 1 SmoothieBox OrangeSmoothie Mix
- 1 cup of orange juice
- 1/2 tablespoon date syrup
- 2 tablespoons granola
- Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth. Depending on you enjoy your smoothie, you may find adding more or less liquid is required to suite your tastes.
- Pour blended smoothie into your SmoothieBox insulated tumbler, or your favorite cup will do, too.
- Top with a handful of extra granola not only for some extra crunch, but for some extra fiber and protein as well. Health tip: Look for granola that is low in sugar.
