This is a quick 2 minute recipe to curb that sweet tooth attack and add a few vitamins, minerals and protein in one bite!
Medjool are the sweetest/softest dates you can use…the rest will pale in comparison and be far less buttery.
Make sure you’re working with room temperature dates or allow them to sit out for an hour or so before you put this recipe together to maximize buttery-ness.
1 small/medium sized medjool date, pitted
.5 tsp shredded coconut
1/4 tsp lemon juice (fresh)
.1 tsp coconut oil melted
Split your date(s) in half but not all the way through. Remove pits.
Add coconut and top with a tiny bit of coconut oil and top with lemon juice.
Repeat for as many poppers as you can handle/fit your diet plan.
Note: I used small/medium dates to come up with the nutritional information below. The extra large californial medjools will blow this out of the water by double.
Great to take on the road as well.
