Cream Cheese Filled Dates

Friday, March 27, 2015

I'm kind of obsessed with dates... Both the out with the husband kind and the fruit kind. :) 

Today I am going to be talking about the fruity kind! Dates are definitely not the most appetizing looking of all the foods. Let’s be honest, they resemble cockroaches! Despite their undesirable exteriors, dates are sweet and taste similar to brown sugar. This little snack is great at providing that quick energy burst that I so often need in the afternoons! I love that I can make a whole plate full to share with friends or I can quickly just make one for myself! 

Give this little snack a try! 
Quick Snack Idea: Cream Cheese filled Dates

Medjool Dates
Light Whipped Cream Cheese (about 1 teaspoon per date)

1. Slice date down the middle on one side and remove the pit.
2. Fill empty space in date with desired amount of cream cheese.
3. Serve and enjoy.

I also like to fill dates with sunflower seed butter, almond butter, and/or
cinnamon ghee... Pretty much anything can be stuffed in a date and taste good!
