hi how many serves oir this recipe?
In your recipes that call for medjol dates, will other dates work. Our bulk barn says they aren't in season so they can't get them.
You can buy them at a health food store or at a major grocery store. I see them all the time.
Can I use a sustitute for the dates? Too much sugar for me.
You can just remove them if you like. The banana will add enough sweetness. Or you could use prunes.
Sorry for my ignorance but what is coconut nectar? The water from the coconut?
This recipe is very tasty!
Hi Joy, I think you are an absolute gift and a delight. I appreciate what you share so much. I wondered if it mattered what sort of SunWarrior protein I picked.. there was something called Warrior Blend and then something just called Rice Protein. I wanted to incorporate this into my diet. (and I really really really want to try the banana cream pie smoothie:) thanks!
Thanks Haley, you are very sweet! The warrior blend is better because it has a more balanced ratio of amino acids as that it's a blend. However, they are both delicious!

I cannot get a message to go through under the "contact us" icon. I want to know what is a good "unflavored protein powder" to take. I cannot stand the flavored ones...but would like to use one as to increase my protein intake without changing the flavor of most of my smoothies etc
We like the Genuine Health protein powders over here at Joyous Health, and they make several unflavoured ones.

I love smoothies! Also, adore cinnamon being sneaked in with fruits. It's amazing how much you can pack into a smoothie and what flavour combinations go together! Love the post.
Hi Joy, just to clarify, when using coconut milk are you referring to organic canned coconut milk? The other options are quite thin in texture and have additives.
Thanks so much for spreading your pure "JOY"
When it comes to smoothies, Joy prefers to make her own coconut milk, if she can! You can find her recipe here: http://www.joyoushealth.com/blog/2013/09/27/super-simple-homemade-coconut-milk/

I missed getting to your seminar at the Toronto yoga show this year. I seen you at the show and you seem like a beautiful person, inside and out. I am currently waiting for a copy of your book Eat well live well without dieting from the library.
I also plan to by a container of genuine health greens to try in my smoothies. I could use the clear thoughts and better concentration. I'm not 50 yet but I sure do have the pre-senior moments!! lol
Thanks for all your healthy information.
Hey Sharon! Thanks so much, you are too sweet! We had a blast at the Yoga show this year and hope to see you at one of our events in the near future. I'm sure you are going to love the book and the protein powder! Wishing you all the best :)

Are these smoothies good for kids? Might be a silly question, but wasn't sure if it was ok for kids to have protein powder.
Hey Kelly! Smoothies are awesome for kids but if you want to include protein powder, I would consult with your natural health care practitioner first. I know Genuine Health doesn't advise their protein powder for kids under the age of 13, however Joy feels comfortable giving it to her 2-year-old daughter Vienna so it's entirely up to you and what you feel is best!
