  1. 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen chopped pineapple
  2. 2 1/2 cups pitted dates, chopped
  3. 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  4. 1 cup whole buttermilk
  5. 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  7. Garnish: vanilla ice cream, chopped dates
  1. In the container of a blender, combine pineapple, dates, ice cream, buttermilk, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Process until mixture is smooth. Garnish each shake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chopped dates, if desired. Serve immediately.
  1. Use whole pitted dates, and chop them. Packaged prechopped dates are too dry to blend properly in the milk shake.
