A creamy, orange-flavored smoothie that is dairy-free and naturally sweetened with fruit!



  • 3/4 cup water or almond milk , plus more if needed to facilitate blending
  • 4 clementines , peeled
  • 2 soft Medjool dates , pitted*
  • 1/4 avocado , pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 handfuls of ice cubes


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until completely smooth. Adjust the flavor to taste, if necessary, and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*If your dates aren't soft, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes and then drain before using. If you don't have a high-speed blender, I'd recommend blending the first five ingredients until they are completely broken down and smooth, then adding the ice and blending again for a slushy texture.
