Why these stuffed dates are so great

  • They are the perfect finger food for entertaining, holidays, or taking to parties.
  • You can easily prep these little bites ahead of time and store in the fridge until it's time to party! 
  • Naturally gluten-free 
  • A great addition to Rosh Hashanah celebrations. The drizzle of honey over the fresh fruit (yes medjool dates are a fresh fruit!) helps to welcome the sweetness and freshness of the new year which is really beautiful!

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Pitted Dates
      • You can't stuff a date without a date! We love using our pitted option for these, but whole work just as well! Just be sure to remove the pit as always 😉If you're running low on your stock of dates, you can buy some in bulk right here or in our 2 pack right here!
    2. Cream Cheese
      • This adds a great creamy texture! You can also use a dairy-free cheese if you so desire. We really love Miyoko's vegan cream cheese as an alternative for the same thickness and flavor.
    3. Pistachios 
      • Crush these up to add a little nutty flavor + crunch. You can totally swap for a different nut/seed of choice like walnuts, pecans, or pumpkin seeds. 
    4. Honey 
      • A little drizzle of this brings everything together and enhances all the flavors. You can omit or swap for Joolies Date Syrup
