Coffee Date Smoothie

Created by Annie Fenn, M.D 

Energize your mornings with a brain-boosting Blue Zones-inspired coffee smoothie!   This bracing smoothie combines a love of coffee with a brain-healthy protein-rich drink.   Dates not only add natural sweetness but also contribute to a good dose of fiber.   Chia seeds and nut butters, are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids known for their role in maintaining brain cell structure, supporting memory, focus, and cognitive well-being.  What's more, recent studies suggest that coffee might even help slow the plaque beta amyloid buildups associated with Alzheimer's, making this smoothie a powerful tool for cognitive wellness.1  And with the option to incorporate additional protein-rich mix-ins, you have a range of choices to further support your brain health. 

Coffee is a precious and often expensive resource, and it's a shame to let any leftovers go to waste.  Instead, try this eco-friendly tip: pour any remaining coffee into ice cube trays and freeze it for future use, where it can stay fresh for up to 3 months.   This way, you'll always have a handy supply for crafting Coffee Date Smoothies or enhancing your iced coffee.
