We’ve got all kinds of Disney recipes here on DFB, from fan-favorite snacks to very tasty desserts. Now, Disney has released a new recipe that you can try at home! 

On Twitter, Disney shared Genie and Abu’s full recipe for their “bonafide” Banana and Date Smoothie that will make you feel like an all-powerful Genie! (We hear it’s Aladdin’s favorite.)

Here’s the full recipe!


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 5 Medjool dates (pitted)
  • 4 tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of almond milk or oat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of ice


  1. The first step to making this smoothing is to make sure your dates are soft and pitted! If your dates aren’t soft enough, they won’t blend into the smoothie well. To help soften them up, you can soak them in hot water for 10 minutes.
  2. Step two is to put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until it’s smooth enough for you! That’s how you make Genie and Abu’s Banana and Date Smoothie. Sounds easy enough!
