Date The Dragon Shake

Cooking time
Serves2 people

Slaying dragons is so fourth century – why not date one instead, wooing it with a drink so sweet and smooth even the scaliest fire breather couldn’t resist. It’s made with dates, creamy bananas, a scattering of nutty sunflower seeds and a green tangle of lamb’s lettuce, all whizzed with a splash of tangy kefir. This smoothie came to slay, but… not like that.

  • 2 Medjool dates
