Coconut Cream Dates

That adorable moment when your bird photobombs your food shoot xoxo Romeo has been super affectionate lately. He knows how to escape his cage even when the doors are tied shut and everything seems secure! I always take food pics in the bird room of my house (also my contemplation/reading room ha ha). Too cute not to share as he is a lovely bird, but his flock mates are more shy. 🐥
This morning I was snacking on my favourite dessert & knew the world needed to know about it. Medjool dates stuffed with coconut butter OMG, IT’S PURE FOOD HEAVEN. Although dates stuffed with Brazil nuts are a close second.
Just open the date, remove the pit and fill with the coconut butter. Eat and enjoy!
To make your own coconut butter:
Process fresh coconut meat in a food processor until finely shredded. Dehydrate at 115 F until dry. Blend until smooth and creamy. If you want a pure white coconut butter be sure to peel the coconut meat before processing. You can also use unsweetened coconut and blend until creamy. Or buy it already prepared. Coconut butter hardens at room temperature and has the consistency of white chocolate or halva.
