2. Adjust flavors/sweetness/consistency to taste, adding more dates, banana, or maple syrup for sweetness, more mango juice for mango flavor, more spices for undernotes, more plant milk to thin out the drink, more ice to make thicker/creamier, etc.

3. Pour into glasses of choice, garnish with the optional toppings or your toppings of choice, and serve. Enjoy!
