Orange Pistachio Cream Dates 3

Orange Pistachio Cream Dates

Serving size: Serves 5 – (4 dates each)

Ingredients:

20 Medjool dates
1 cup shelled pistachios
¾ cup freshly squeezed orange juice (OR 100% fruit juice, no sugar added and not from concentrate)
1 teaspoon orange zest
Pinch of unrefined sea salt

Directions:

1. In a food processor or a blender, grind pistachios, ¼ cup orange juice, orange zest and sea salt.

2. Add remaining orange juice (1/2 cup) and blend until mixture is smooth and creamy. If your students prefer a chunkier blend, only grind the mixture until ingredients are mixed together.

3. Cut each date in half and add a smidge of the cream to one side. Close with the other side and serve. Or if students prefer, they can put a dollop of the cream on a plate and dip the dates into it.
