How can I parse this dynamic dropdown list to show only dd/mm/yyyy?

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Given the below list call and bind, how can I parse the dd output to be just dd/mm/yyyy?

      protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            DropDownList3.DataSource = this.GetQuarter(new System.DateTime(2008, 4, 10), 3);

        public List<DateTime> GetQuarter(DateTime startDate, int years)
            List<DateTime> lst = new List<DateTime>();
            DateTime endDate = startDate.AddYears(3);
            while (startDate < endDate)
                startDate = startDate.AddMonths(3);
            return lst;
