what's in the bulk bin?

Dates are the sweet dried fruit of the tree known as the Date Palm. They are not the most beautiful fruit in the world but I think they have a great taste. Don't know what to do with them? Here is my suggestion: Make a smoothie. Sound a bit strange to you? Try it and you might like it.

This is what I do. Put all of the following into the blender:
6-8 whole dates
2 ripe bananas
1 big spoonful of peanut butter or tahini
about 1/2 tsp cinnamon
milk of your choice until you get the consistency that you like. I use rice milk.
The dates will still be a little chunky at the end but I think it makes it better.

What do you do with dates? Post your ideas in the comments.
