Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoepershopper from Surprised at the creamy sweetness of this. I accidentally over cooked some brown rice the other day and added ¼ cup of it into this smoothie for a little bit of healthy carbs before my a.m. workout. It was delicious. I love the consistency and the sweetness. Plus it's really filling. Definitely saving this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Draemdaniels from Refreshing, creamy, Goodness We have tried this drink a few times now with a slight variation. We use a couple dates and no sugar and it is plenty sweet for us. I like that we get to use an avocado in this drink and it adds to the smooth creamy texture plus getting a dose of healthy fat. We will keep making this smoothy adding the ice is a nice touch on a hot day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lucy1 from I love this delicious drink I just made this recipe with a minor variation. I substituted 1 cup of frozen strawberries instead of the ice cubes and honey instead of granulated sugar. It was very smooth and delicious.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ronymd888 from Could be healthier No need to add sugar! Just use ripe frozen bananas. The riper the sweeter. Whole Foods Plant Based!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CeliRene from If you love banana shakes... then this drink delivers. Reminds me of the banana strawberry shakes my mom would make me as a kid. She added milk and sugar to the cut up fruit + some $1 shake packet she would buy in the produce section. The Vitamix recipe doesn't have to use that packet so keeping it simple definitely adds to the nutrition value. I used a package of store bought frozen avocado chunks (about 20 cubes) which is equivalent to 1/2 an avocado. Since I didn't taste any avocado, the next time I will try 30 chunks instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawn68222 from Tasty No need to add sugar. Sweet enough if bananas are ripe. Will make again trying Almond milk, maybe chocolate.
