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.
