Chocolate Date Spread

Updated: Jun 1

Rich, decadent and refined sugar free. This easy-to-make Chocolate Date spread has always been a favourite of mine.

Healthy and Delicious-

Did you know that dates are packed with essential nutrients?


They are one of the healthiest fruits containing high amounts of fiber, potassium and antioxidants.

Dates have a sweet and delicious caramel like flavour, making them perfect for snacking or blending into a variety of smoothies, meals and desserts.


Pick a DATE to make this healthy chocolate date spread! You can spread it on cakes, crepes, fruits and cookies.


I hope you love it as much as I do!


Fun Fact: Eating dates through the last few weeks of pregnancy is known to help ease labour or prevent the need for being induced.
