Dates have more antioxidants then berries and more potassium than bananas. They sweeten and compliment every other flavor. Only 20 calories per date.

Well I usually put in chunks of banana, low-fat yogurt, and unsweetened cocoa powder. It tastes delicious.

I urge everyone to use frozen fruit - no need to add ice and especially frzn bananas are good. My favorite is banana, cherries & milk, just a drop of vanilla.
