Choc Orange Dates
- 10-30 minutes to prepare
- Makes 10 filled dates
- How to make
10 tsps nut or seed butter (see alternative options)
3 tsps cocoa powder
Zest of 2 oranges (reserve a little for topping)
1 tbsp orange juice
10 soft dates
How to make
Mix together the nut or seed butter, cocoa powder, orange zest and juice to form a paste
Slice the dates open (not completely in half), then add a little of the cocoa & orange mixture to the middle
Close the opened date slightly then sprinkle with a little extra zest
Great for an after dinner treat served on a platter for the family to enjoy.
You could use thick Greek yogurt or coconut cream instead of the nut or seed butter but these won’t last long outside of the fridge, so will need to be made very fresh.
