Avocado Date Shake with Almond Milk

date shake recipe

I’ll admit I was skeptical when my friend Kari raved about an avocado date shake she was making for an upcoming video. But after just one sip – this quickly became one of my favorite smoothie combinations of all time.

The ingredients are simple: homemade almond milk, dates and avocado. But each of them works to make this smoothie (which I call a smoothie, but is sweet & rich enough to be considered a shake) creamy, smooth and downright perfect.

Here’s how to make it.

    Wow! That video is amazing! Your friend has a huge talent for video making! I love avocado in my smoothies, but I’ve never actually added dates. Looks delicious – and may even be able to toss in some spinach or kale without altering the taste too much!

    The video is by Tastemade but my friend Kari did the recipe & styling. Beautiful isn’t it! You can definitely add other greens without altering the taste – it actually just takes on a prettier color!
