Organic Medjool Dates

Description

Organic Medjool dates are more than a little bit special.

Organic Medjool Dates are wonderfully sweet and succulent.  They make life without refined sugar possible by offering a decadent healthy natural alternative. Dates have been a staple part of the middle eastern diet for thousands of years because they are delicious and rich in nutrition.

Medjools are the most popular date variety because they are bigger, sweeter and softer so combine really well in desserts and smoothies. This makes them particularly popular with raw food enthusiasts and vegans.  These soft gooey dates are best kept chilled.

If you want a less decadent choice for everyday then deglet nour dates are a nice middle ground as they are semi-soft and still full of flavour.  If you want dates purely for baking then try soaking our semi-dry aseel dates for a cupboard staple.  All three are delicious!

Family Tip:

  1. Medjool 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 medjool dates.
  2. Medjool 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.
