I'd DATE you, sweetheart!

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

No, this is not a want add for a boyfriend.

Nor is this a relationship status update.

This is a recipe post.

A post that involves two really easy recipes.

One a side dish.

The other, a breakfast/dessert/snack.

Both involve dates.

Those dates help curb sugar cravings.

This is all very, very easy.

Roasted Asparagus With Dates

1 lb Fresh Asparagus
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 Medjool Dates
Citrus Champagne Vinegar
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 350
Trim, wash and prep the asparagus.  Pit and chop the medjool dates
On a large, non-stick cookie sheet toss the asparagus and dates with a light drizzle of EVOO.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and splash with vinegar.
Salt & Pepper to taste.

Strawberry Date Smoothie

 1/2 Ripe Avocado
6-8 Medium Frozen Strawberries
3/4 Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 Medjool Date, pitted

In your mixer, I have a NutriBullet, place all of the ingredients.  
Blend until smooth.

Also, enjoy the many photos below.  In case the instructions were confusing or unclear.

Or, you are kind.  Mostly, because you are kind.
