Experimenting with all types of salted caramel treats right now and loving how versatile this salted caramel filling is ❤️❤️
Dates are a great source of fibre and mood-boosting potassium, but make sure you consume in moderation as they are also high in natural sugars. This recipe is a perfect finish to those days you have over-exerted yourself physically and emotionally and need a bit of nutritional TLC.
What you need:
- 12-15 medjool dates
- 3 extra medjool dates (pitted, soaked boiling water 10 minutes)
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked over night, drained)
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 3 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/3 can coconut cream
- Melted dark chocolate to serve (optional)
What you do:
Slice the dates half way and remove pits. All other ingredients into food processor for 10 minutes, scraping side occasionally – you want this mixture as smooth and creamy as you can get it.
Put salted caramel mix into a piping bag (I used a snap-lock bag with the corner snipped) and fill dates.
Drizzle with melted dark chocolate if you feel like an extra serotonin kick!!
