I'm trying to make a date smoothie with a nice consistency AND with the dates mixed evenly throughout. When I tried the other night, I used some chopped-up dried dates. Was that a mistake -- should I have used fresh? The dates ended up in a goopy mess on the bottom of the glass, NOT what I've seen in some date smoothies I've bought.
I also didn't freeze the yogurt in advance -- I suppose I should do that next time.
Also -- I'm using a two-speed Osterizer -- do I need to upgrade my blender to make a proper smoothie?
TIA for the advice!
