Okay, two secrets to share with you today! First secret: air tight jars are everything! Not only are mason jars perfect for smoothies, they’re also prefect for keeping berries fresh longer! I got these raspberries from the grocery store and in the past, they’ll go bad within 2-3 days regardless of what I’d do but after leaving it (unwashed) in a mason jar, they stayed fresh! I love having berries last longer without having to freeze it.

Okay and now secret number two – how I get my smoothies to be super thick and creamy so it holds up my toppings! I mentioned before that I like making smoothie bowls as I like adding toppings which makes me feel like I’m eating an actual meal instead of a drink as I’ll be chewing more (thus I’m not tempted to have a second meal on top of the smoothie). So what’s my secret to having a super thick and creamy smoothies? Frozen bananas and/or avocados!

I either put a few frozen bananas into my smoothies or avocados if they’ve ripened in time for my smoothie craving or both if I have both! Because of nature of the smoothie, it’s best to use either a high power blender or a food processor to make this. The food processor I use is from cuisinart (amazon affilate link). I tried using a regular blender for this once and it did not work at all.

With this Creamy Banana Raspberry Avocado Date Smoothie, you don’t need to add any additional sweeteners as there is a natural, caramel like sweetness from the medjool dates. In addition, because of the dates and banana in this recipe, it can double as not only your breakfast but a pre/post-run fuel thanks to the high amounts of potassium! And if you want to make this more fun? Freeze this smoothie recipe for 30 mins to an hour and it comes out as a nice cream aka diary free ice cream. It really doesn’t get any better than that!
