Peach Dessert

A single medium serving for one, OR it can be shared as two small servings.

Ingredients for base:
7 or 8 Medjool dates pitted (or 1 cup of your favorite dates)
1/2 of a small to medium yellow nectarine, pit removed

(You can use several drops of regular vanilla extract instead)
Blend until smooth or almost smooth and spread onto a plate or into a dessert ramekin

Variation options for base:
You can use a peach instead of nectarine for blending
OR you can omit the nectarine, add a handful of extra dates and blend in 2-4 TBLS of fresh young thai coconut water

1 large ripe juicy yellow peach cut into slices (or enough peaches to cover the surface)

Incredible Date Dip Recipe – Like Mock Peanut Butter – No Nuts

This is one of my favorite fall/winter recipes when dates and persimmons are at their peak of perfection. It often reminds me of peanut butter even though there are no nuts and it’s basically fat free. With the added flavor of vanilla and the fluffy texture, this recipe also reminds me of frosting. It’s so good, you feel like you’re eating something incredibly decadent. 

Ingredients:
1 large Fuji apple cored and sliced. Set aside and used for dipping.
27 Halawy dates or a little over 7 oz. or 200 grams of your favorite juicy dates (pitted)
1 small ripe, semi soft fuyu persimmon, approximately 3 oz., or 80 grams (peeled & make sure there are no seeds) If you’re not familiar with persimmons, be sure to check out my persimmon video. Using an unripe hachiya persimmon will ruin your recipe. 
2-3 Tbls fresh coconut water (I love young thai coconuts for their sweet, coconut flavor)
a dash of vanilla powder or approx. 3 drops of vanilla extract

Directions:
With a stick blender, blend dates, persimmon, coconut water and vanilla extract into a creamy consistency. Transfer to a small bowl or ramekin. Dip your apple slices and enjoy as a meal, snack or dessert! You can use a blender if you have a smaller container and you use a tamper, or just use a larger blender like a Vitamix and double the recipe. It will certainly keep for several days in the refrigerator. 

You can use your favorite apple for dipping. I love Fuji apples because they’re sweet, crisp and delicious.
