Frozen Almond Stuffed Dates

 

IMG_8654

I consistently ate this snack three days in a row while studying for the RD exam, one, because I originally made a lot and had them in my freezer, and two, because they are amazing on a hot day. This perfect power snack gives a great boost of energy with a sweet satisfying finish. Stuffed dates are a multifaceted treat and can be made not only as a healthy snack, but as a dessert enjoyed by all.  

Frozen Almond Stuffed Dates

Preparation: 5 minutes

Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted, almonds
  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • desiccated coconut, optional

Simply stuff each date with the almonds and freeze.I think this is a great and easy snake to prepare and freeze into individual portion sizes using sandwich baggies. You can later pull out one bag at a time as needed for a healthy option on a hot summer day. For the dipping sauce, blend banana, coconut milk, and spices. Top with desiccated coconut.
