Does anyplace make a date shake, preferbly north of Boston?

i just was eating dates and had a hankering for a date shake, but dont have a Ninja or blender so will have to go out for one.. Also, my Market Basket Medjool dates were kinda stringy and fibrous. Is there somewhere that sells really soft ones? Is it just that they are older and more dried out?

  1. When i read the title, I thought a date shake was a shake with 2 straws!

    1. I've been getting medjool dates from the Fresh Pond Whole Foods that are so, so soft and delicious. I've had to stop buying them because I was going through them too fast. But I do have a Ninja, so I think I'm going to buy one more container to try a date shake. That sounds delicious!

      1. I've been happy with the Medjool dates from Trader Joe's.

        1. I've had very good date and banana shakes at Red Lentil in Watertown.

          1. Back in the 89's I remember driving along the pacific highway on the way to San DIego when we pulled over to a truck on the side of the road selling great date shakes. Hmmm, hmmm good !
