Raw Food: Almond-Based Berry Smoothie

Total Time
Prep 7 mins
Cook 0 mins

I saw this recipe on a raw food lecture video. Although, I don't follow the raw food diet, I like some of the recipes. This one is good because it's dairy-free and sugar-free. I've also used kiwi in place of the berries with good results. (Prep. time doesn't includ soaking time.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse almonds.
  2. Put all ingredients in a blender. I put them in in order, and I never have a problem with the dates getting stuck in the bottom.
  3. Pulse until the chunks are broken up. Then blend until smooth.
  4. Makes 2 servings. I eat one serving, and save the other for the following day. The banana will cause some discoloration in the saved serving, but the taste is still good.

Smooth and creamy and I didn't even soak the raw almonds!! Make sure something is frozen in here or it won't be cold! I used organic bananas huge medjool dates and more water. I like how it was only lightly sweet. I would make this again with frozen bananas as I hate frozen strawberries.

Excellent smoothie! My processor got the almonds nicely smooth, and I took WRS' idea to soak the dates, too. Made it with blueberries and some sour cherries and will definitely make it again!! Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.

This was tasty and easy to make. We used the strawberries. I'm sure we will make this again when we want a quick meal. Thanks!
