  • Blitz until a smooth consistency is achieved.

Notes

  • If you have a high speed blender, blend the smoothie for about a minute until it is smooth. If you have a slower blender you may need to increase this time for up to a minute.
  • Don't add ice to the smoothie. The frozen fruit will make it chilled and ice will dilute it.
  • If you use fresh strawberries make sure they are ripe for the best flavor.
  • If the dates are small, you may want to soak them for 10 minutes before adding them to the blender. This will help them to plump and soften so that they are easier to blend.
