I took to buying deglet dates at Trader Joe's lately because 1. they are cheaper than medjool and 2. they are less calories for a few more. There is about 110 calories in 5 small deglet dates and they are just as delicious as medjool dates. Want a chewy, decadent snack? Get some medjool dates but for recipes such as raw desserts and smoothies, use deglet dates. I also make my hot chocolate with canned coconut milk because it's super duper creamy. I buy light coconut milk to cut down on so much fat but you can buy full fat coconut milk or any milk you wish, actually. But I love canned light coconut milk.
1 cup of plant-based milk
1.5 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa
5 deglet dates, soaked in hot water
2 tsp of cinnamon
