  • Date Smoothie

    I made this, but substituted lowfat cottage cheese (Knudsen On-The-Go - 4oz cup)
    instead of the yogurt*. If you substitute deglet noor dates instead of medjool
    dates you'll probably want to soften them with a tiny bit of water in the microwave first. The
    deglet noor dates I used didn't blend well, but I think "melting" them a bit with a
    tiny bit of hot water in the microwave would take care of that. Definitely use fresh dates,
    dried dates will not blend well.

    *Yogurt is on the try-it list. If you use cottage cheese, be sure the brand you choose
    has no acidic preservatives.

    I really liked this & will make it again
