    What a bargain! Such a great price for Dates and Organic too. I love these and buy in bulk to add to green smoothies or to make raw deserts.

    The Assel dates are absolutely delicious. They go really well in hemp protein bars, bread and butter pudding and with rice pudding too. Thumbs up Forest Whole Foods and what a bargain as well…thank you 🙂

Family Tip:

  1. Aseel Dates are a natural sweetener for lots of recipes and a little goes a long way. They go particularly well in energy balls as their sticky texture binds ground nuts and seeds together. Search for raw desserts and you probably won’t find a recipe that doesn’t call for dates.
  2. Aseel Dates go particularly well with cacao to make delicious raw chocolate smoothies. Using almond or coconut milk as a base can make a highly nutritious chocolate ‘mylk’ with a heavenly texture.
  3. You could try our date cake recipe.
