Los Angeles Times - - PARADE -

A soaked, pit­ted date adds just the right amount of sweet­ness to this very tasty, jewel-toned smoothie.

In a small bowl, soak 1 chopped pit­ted date in boil­ing wa­ter for 10 min­utes. Drain. Add to a blen­der along with 1¼ cups co­conut wa­ter or wa­ter, 2 cups mixed fresh or frozen berries, ½ cup red seed­less grapes, 1 ripe pear (skin on), cored and diced, ½ tsp minced gin­ger, ¼ tsp ground cin­na­mon, ½ tsp finely grated or­ange zest and 1 cup ice cubes. Puree on high 30 to 60 sec­onds, un­til smooth and creamy, adding more wa­ter as needed to blend. Serves 2.
