I love dates because they contain anti-inflammatory and anti-infective properties which make it an excellent food for those who suffer with chronic infections and auto-immune disorders. They're a good source of vitamin A & B-complex and they are rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese, copper, and potassium + they help to remove toxins from the liver. The only problem is, they have a really high sugar content. So to solve that problem, I recently shared a recipe for sugar free 'Fermented Dates'.


The recipe below is one of the easiest ways to use these fermented dates as you only need 2 ingredients. 


Optional add ins - cinnamon, turmeric, cardamom, collagen powder, adaptogenic herbs, orange or peppermint essential oil or zest, cacao powder, stevia to taste, cacao nibs etc.


1. Blend the dates and coconut together until well combined. 
2. Add in any extra ingredients and re-blend. My favourite add ins are loads of cinnamon and dried ginger + 1 tsp ashwagandha, orange zest or oil and a little stevia to taste. If the mix is too wet add in extra coconut and re-blend until you reach the right consistency. 
3. Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls. 
4. Leave plain or roll them in cinnamon, turmeric, shredded coconut, cacao nibs or cacao powder. 
5. Store in an air-tight container. Eat within 1 week.
