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.

Ingredients

12 medjool pitted dates

2 tbsp raw cocao

2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Directions

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.

Make whatever shape you want with the dates

Cover it with cacao or coconut.
