Instructions:

  1. Gather all the ingredients and ensure that the dates are pitted.
  2. In a bowl, combine rolled oats, chia seeds, and flaxseeds. Add enough water to cover the mixture and let it soak for at least 30 minutes or overnight. This helps soften the oats and allows the seeds to absorb liquid.
  3. After soaking, transfer the soaked oats and seeds into a blender.
  4. Add the sliced banana and pitted dates to the blender. Dates will add natural sweetness and a rich flavor to the smoothie.
  5. Pour the almond milk (or a milk of your choice) into the blender.
  6. Spoon in the Greek yogurt, as it adds creaminess and a dose of protein to your smoothie.
  7. If you have a sweet tooth, add a teaspoon of honey. Adjust according to your sweetness preference.
  8. Blend all ingredients until you achieve the desired smoothie texture and creamy consistency. If it is too thick, consider adding more milk to reach your desired thickness.
  9. Adjust the sweetness or thickness if necessary.
  10. For a colder smoothie, add a handful of ice cubes and blend it.
  11. In a glass, pour the smoothie and serve immediately. You can garnish with additional banana slices or sprinkle chia seeds if desired.
