Does anyone have any tips for extracting dates? I deseeded a fresh date and threw it in to my husband's smoothie containing 2 cups spinach, 1/2 banana, 2/3 cups of frozen mixed berries, and almond milk. Other than deseeding, is there anything else I'm suppose to do to a date to ensure it extracts smoothly? 

That's all I do. I put one large Date or Fig in every Blast I make. Just pop out the seed in the Date and throw it in. It always extracts smoothly for me. The only things that don't extract smoothly for me are dried fruits like cherries. They're a little leathery and the blades just throw them around. But they're a nice little treat to suck up through the straw and chew up, so I don't mind. -Steve
Thanks Steve. Maybe I'll extract them a little longer.
