I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to play around with the fabulous Froothie Optimum Blender. The Optimum Blender is supplied by an Australian owned company that offers a variety of blenders at a variety of prices. What I love the most about this style of blender is the ability to see what you are doing. You can keep an eye on exactly where your ingredients are at without needing to switch off or remove the lid. The Optimum Blender has an impressive six blade assembly which I had not seen or used before. The Optimum Blender can tackle a vast array of kitchen tasks, from soups to smoothies, to nut butters and nut milks. You can further explore its capabilities here. We have been devouring this Caramel Milkshake which, despite the medjool dates and frozen banana, comes out silky smooth and truly delicious every time.
1 frozen banana, chopped*
6 medjool dates, seeds removed
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
1 cup water
Place all of the ingredients into your blender and blend at high speed until smooth. Serve, drink and enjoy!
*Peel your banana prior to freezing
