(LFRV compliant!) Popular high-carb high-calorie get you moving drink loved by many Low Fat Raw Vegans aka Frugivores! Struggling to get your calories in? This is the key & tastes amazing!! The amount of water is up to you - less for more of a pudding and extra for more of a milky drink. Play with the ratios to find what you prefer!! Popularized by Freelee at Soft, succulent, organic medjool dates are best but any will do. Soak your dates for 6 hours or overnight. If you can't get organic then discard the soaking water or drain & rinse about half way through the soak time and keep the second round of soak water. (Times don't include soaking). Remember food combining!! This will move fast through your system so nothing heavier before and wait an hour after sweet fruit for a different type.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 dates, pitted and soaked (high quality organic medjool are optimal)
  • 3 cups water (vary for different consistencies)


  1. Put soaked pitted dates in blender add desired amount of water, blend, and ENJOY!
  2. Add some fresh orange juice for a lovely spin. (Possible bad food combo - try it and see if you digest it well).

I have a 6 hour final tomorrow (no breaks) so I'll be sipping on this and munching on spiced walnuts to keep me going through the day. I used fresh dates of Bam as the Medjool were too expensive, but it still tasted great! I processed the dates with half the water to make it smoother, then added the remaining water and passed through a sieve to remove any left over pieces of skin for an extra creamy drink. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll be making this again -- this is exactly what I was looking for for my exam!!!

Wonderful!!! DD (toddler) and I drank this up quickly. I use Parnoosh soft honey dates. I used about 2 1/4 cups spring water, great with no freshly squeezed orange juice doing proper food combining yet I tried it with 1 orange no pith and squeezed the rest of the juice in as well and it makes for a nice flavour, yet I feel it's better on the body without. I will make this with soft dates often when I want some energy!
