Preparation time: 40+ min
500 g Medjool dates
150 g cashew nuts
100 ml oat milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs agave syrup (optional, as dates are already sweet enough)
2 tbs cacao
2 tbs chia seeds
3 tbs crushed cacao seeds (cacao nibs)
3 tbs coconut chips
Soak the nuts overnight. The next day, drain and rinse them under running water.
Add them to a blender along with plant-based milk, vanilla, and agave syrup and blend until smooth. Add more milk, if necessary, for a smoother blending process.
Place the mixture into a bowl and add washed chia seeds and mix. These will only thicken the creamy mixture. Place one-half of the cream into a different bowl, add cacao, and mix. Store the two mixtures in a cool place and in the meantime, prepare the dates.
Cut the date lengthwise, remove the pit, and spread it as if to make a little basket that you will later fill with cream. Do the same with the rest of the dates.
Then start filling the dates with the cream. Help yourself with a teaspoon. Decorate the vanilla stuffed dates with coconut chips, and the chocolate dates with cacao nibs.
Use your imagination and tailor the recipe to your taste. Enjoy creativity and Bon Appetit.
