This easy recipe is fantastic as a snack, dessert, or appetizer.
I used to love blue cheese, and dates filled with blue cheese are amazing. Since going off dairy, I’ve been using cashew cream instead. If you’re not familiar with cashew cream, it’s really easy to make and almost tastes like a very mild soft cheese.
Paleo Dates with Cashew Cream Recipe
To make the cashew cream, blend soaked, raw cashews with some water (and I like to add a bit of coconut oil for extra flavor and nutrition). You have to make a minimum amount of about a cup for most blenders to work (otherwise, there’s just not enough to blend).
After you’ve made the cashew cream, slit open each pitted date and fill with the cashew cream. And then eat.
