We all know dates are so darn delicious on their own, but did you know you can use dates for way more than just snacking? These nutritious fruits have plenty of reasons why you should add them to your daily diet. Here are some of our favorite ways to use them that you may not have thought about:
Date Syrup: Looking for a healthy alternative to sugar-filled syrups without losing out on the delicious taste? All you’ll need is dates and water! Soak your dates in boiling water for 2 hours, mash, strain the pulp, and boil the liquid until it thickens. Pour over your favorite pancakes or waffles, and enjoy!
Energy Bars: Get even more benefits from your dates by adding them into homemade energy bars. Perfect for before a workout, or on the go!
Date Spread: A guilt-free addition to any toast, english muffin, or as a dipping sauce for your favorite snack! Date butters and pastes are a delicious and healthy way to sweeten up your breakfast or dessert.
Stuffed Dates: Just when you thought dates couldn’t get any better… STUFF THEM! Dates are a beneficial vessel for foods like cheeses, nuts, fruits, and more!
Smoothies: Since dates are natural sweeteners, they add the perfect sweetness to your morning smoothies, on top of providing vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber.
Adding dates to some of your favorite foods can add big flavor, and even bigger benefits like improved heart health, digestive health, and natural energy boost!
