Best Fruit Smoothie Evar!

I was still kinda hungry (had a fairly light early dinner) but didn’t want anything too heavy, so decided to make a fruit smoothie. Typically I make these during the day as a snack, but good for dessert or breakfast too. The fruits are of course variable, but this particular combination really worked well, so I’m going to record it.


  • 1 large very ripe banana
  • 10 oz package frozen organic strawberries
  • 7 oz container plain unsweetened greek yogurt
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 7 pecan halves
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • rose water


  1. Add all ingredients to blender. Adjust amount of almond milk until desired consistency is reached (about 1 cup?). Go easy on the rose water, a small amount is plenty (about half a capful).
  2. Blend on high until light and frothy (start out on low to break up the chunks).
  3. serve in margarita glass, with a straw.


  1. While writing this, I think I figured out the reason this was the “Best Smoothie Evar” The yogurt was kinda old, and added a pleasant sour/fermented flavour, similar to buttermilk. Normally I make my own yogurt, will have to try leaving it out longer to get this effect.
  2. Another favourite fruit combo I love is mango and kiwi. But pretty much anything can go in, including apples (core but its ok to leave the skin), oranges, pineapple, grapes, berries, carrots, jalapenos, etc.
