Dates are a flowering plant from the palm family which take 4-8 years to flourish after planting.
Dates are packed with fibre which means their sugars are digested more slowly, avoiding a sugar crash. These fruits are rich in copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, potassium, calcium and vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6. They contain 23 types of amino acids that are absent in most fruits. Despite the large amount of carbohydrates, they can be included in the diet as a substitute for sweets.

HOW TO ENJOY

The fruit can be used in a wide variety of recipes. Dates go well with meat, milk, yoghurts, suitable for salads, pilaf, stewed fruit and jelly. It is especially often used for the preparation of confectionery, pastries and desserts, for which dates are stuffed with marzipan, nuts, cheeses, candied fruits and poured with chocolate icing.
Alternatively try dipping in almond butter and cover it with chocolate sauce for a nourishing snack. Commonly used in sweet dishes, they also serve as a good base for any energy ball.
