Many date enthusiasts are passionate about Medjool dates which are exceptionally succulent and sweet and are jam-packed with nutrients. .
Pit and chop Medjools for a delicious addition to smoothies, muesli and porridge; or include them with seeds and nuts in a snack mix when you’re on the go. In savoury recipes, they can be used in sauces, pickles, chutney and stuffing; and add sweetness to rice, couscous or quinoa and vegetarian dishes. Popular in many sweet and savoury raw food recipes, dates are delicious with nut butter or soft cheese, in wraps, fresh salads or chia desserts. Their large size makes them perfect for stuffing, once the pit is removed.
Their soft, stickiness is a great binder for slices, energy balls and muesli bars. Dates are also yummy in home-baked fruit bread, scones, muffins, biscuits and cakes – and absolutely delightful in steamed puddings.
