Dates…

…I can’t live without them!

DSC_0049I can have them for snack, dessert, breakfast, dinner…anything! And they always come to rescue when my blood pressure is going low. My favourite are dates with a glass of cold milk. Almond stuffed chocolate covered dates would be number one favourite if they weren’t so expensive and difficult to make.

These dates pictured here have half an almond stuffed in them and are covered in sesame seeds, I’m sad that there are so little of them left. But I love all kinds of dates, except the fresh yellow ones I guess! Other ways I love to eat them are in a Date Smoothie, Fruit Salad, Brownie Bites, Date Maamouls, and well, just pop them in =D

What’s your favourite way to eat dates?

  1. Dates are so rich in taste and nutrition, and yummy yummy!
    Every Muslim must love eating dates.
    The Messenger (Sal-lallaahu alaihi Wasallam) said, “O Aisha! A house that has no dates in it their family is hungry. Oh Aisha! A house that has no dates in it their family is hungry.” [Saheeh Muslim (153), (2046)]
    Thank you for this beautiful reminder, sister.
    Vassalam.
    PS: Btw, the fresh yellow ripe dates are tasty too :)

    • Yes the dark yellow ones which have ripened are good, but the lighter yellow ones which are half ripe and half unripe…I don’t like those much and the black ones are my most favourite =)

    • Ajwa are the best! Both in taste and benefit ofcourse, but they’re so expensive and difficult to get hands on. MashaAllah its great you can get enough to eat 7 everyday :)
