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.
