"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.)"

"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!"
"A smoothie to keep! I like how this was light, but filled with energy, and not overloaded with sweetness either- a nice balanced breakfast. I used ground almonds (not soaked of course) and subbed plums for the berries. The only problem was with small chunks of date, even after a lot of blending- I'd recommend soaking them with the almonds. Thick and lovely! Thanks!"
"I liked this even though it was a little gritty. But my 3yo and 1yo sons refused it. The flavor is great though! I used the almond-soaking water in the drink and used frozen strawberries. Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag."
