All you need to do is combine the following in a blender: 1 cup walnut milk, ¾ cup pitted medjool dates, roughly chopped, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, ¼ tsp ground cinnamon and 1 cup of ice cubes. This will make you 3 servings, so you’ll have enough to share or will have already made yourself three breakfasts this week.
