Today's Smoothie

Today we made a smoothie with:

1 cup almond milk
1 cup Brown Cow vanilla yogurt
1 mandarin orange
1 ounce dried gojiberries
3 Medjool dates
1/2 cup ice

This turned out better than I expected.  my_partner_doug wanted to try emphasizing the gojiberries and is the one who thinks their flavor (the middle note, in my opinion) resembles dates.  The color is a bright pinkish-orange, the texture close to juice, grittier than previous smoothies, and it foamed a lot more than usual.  The flavor is mostly gojiberry, so kind of tropical-fruity with funky undertones.  To me, it's okay.  To someone who really likes dates and/or gojiberries, this would probably be much more appealing, so if you are a fan of those, consider it.
