I like to call them energy on a stick. The bitterness of the raw cacao and the natural sweetness of the dates are the perfect mix to satisfy your sweet tooth. Imagine having a sweet treat that is also an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Dates are a rich source of B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese, calcium, and iron. Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring and the date pops are the biggest example of a delicious, fun, tasty but healthy treat.
Add the dates and cacao and start mixing until it becomes one big piece of date paste. I chose not to add coconut to this specific recipe, but it also tastes really good with coconut in the mix. By adding coconut, you will need less dates.
