Raw Vegan Date Recipes

Dates are great eaten by themselves in their whole natural state and are the best choice as a raw vegan sweetener when making recipes. No smoothie reaches its full potential without dates. They make just about everything taste better. Try using them in salads, pie crust, desserts, nut milks, drinks or with lettuce and celery. One of my favorite ways to eat them is with a little dab of raw tahini. Experiment, you really can't go wrong.

Please send us your raw vegan desserts, drinks, treats, & fruit salad recipes which use dates as the only sweetener for all to enjoy.
