Natural Delights Fresh Medjool Dates

Disclosure: I received free samples of Natural Delights for the purpose of my post and I received compensation by Natural Delights in exchange for my time. All opinions express in this post are my own. 

I am so thrilled to be able to offer today’s giveaway because I know how much all of you enjoy and look forward to the tradition of breaking your fast with dates during Ramadan (and other times of the year). As the eve of Ramadan is upon us, it’s definitely a very special time we’re ready to absorb and appreciate. 

California-grown Bard Valley Fresh Medjool Dates by Natural Delights is offering a pretty neat package to one randomly-selected winner. See details below on what’s included and how to enter.

On your way down, I’ve included two recipes with dates for those times when you just have so many around or just want to try something different, like incorporating them into sweet treats for Iftar guests. The Medjool dates by Natural Delights are perfect in recipes like this very popular (yet quick and easy to make) dessert for Pistachio Date Rolls and Coconut Date Rolls that uses them up quite nicely.

One of my trips through the ‘valley of dates’ in California inspired me to come back home and make my own Date Shake that the area is well-known for, and it is a real treat. Medjool dates are the preferred date in this drink, which is nice at either Iftar or Suhoor time or somewhere in between during the non-fasting hours of Ramadan.

Pitted Medjool Dates

  1. I love oatmeal date cookies. Also fill pitted dates with almond or walnut to pack quick snacks for the kids on the go.

  2. Salaam, we use dates to open our fast (aftaar). There r several ways to use them though beside aftaar like shakes ,salads , fruit salad, slice them up and top it over your kheer (rice pudding ).

  3. I love chopping up medjool dates and adding them to my oatmeal and yogurt parfaits! Medjool are the best kind because they’re so soft and have a great flavor.

  4. As’salam Alaikum,

    My family love dates. Especially natural w/ milk, regardless if is Ramadan or not. We also love them in a Moroccan cookie called makro.

    Ramadan Mubarak All

  5. I always keep Medjool dates at home, not just during Ramadan. I love the burst of instant energy and fiber they add to my daily life. My children have started eating them too. I am looking forward to making some of the recipes, especially the milkshake, this Ramadan.

  6. I love to eat medjool dates just by themselves. The plump soft ones are my favorite, and they are better than eating candy when I am craving something sweet.

  7. Ramadan Kareem. I love to use the dates for Ma’moul. I also use it for my Oatmeal Muffins!! I make the muffins and add raisins, dates and Walnuts.

  8. I love eating dates whether stuffed with almonds or with cream and pistachios. I also make date cookies which I freeze! I also make date and tamarind chutney!
    I like to make whole wheat
    banana bread with walnuts,chocolate chips and dates!

    The date cookies that I make are as follows:
    1 pkt marie biscuits
    400gm pitted dates
    1 egg
    1/4 cup butter ir smart balance
    Pinch of illachi
    powder
    1/2 cup almonds
    1/4 cup whole pistachios
    1/2 cup pumpkin(char maghaz seeds)
    Sugar as needed ( I personally dont add sugar)
    Dessicated coconut as needed

    First I take a saucepan and melt the butter and add the pitted dates and cook them on low heat for 10 minutes. When the dates become mushy I add the nuts and cardamon powder and mix well.
    Then I add the chopped marie biscuits and 1 unbeaten egg and mix well until well combined on low heat . I take the mixture off the heat and grease my hands with olive oil and make a log out of this mixture .I dust this log roll with dessicated coconut and wrap it in foil paper and freeze it until needed. I Thaw this roll as needed and cut 1/2 inch crunchy cold biscuits! I hope you love them too! I have been making these biscuits for 13 years!!!

  9. Asalamu alaykum! I am excited, but nervous, for Ramadan. It’s my first one and I’d love to have dates to break my fast. Thank you for offering this giveaway!

  10. My mom slices them and puts them in biryani. Gives it flavor. But we also like to eat them with almonds stuffed in them. They’re tasty

  11. Salaams,

    Ramafan kareem to you all.

    My favorite way to include dates in my cooking is to include them in a rice and lentils dish. They add iron to an already iron-rich dish as well as unexpected sweetness and decadence. It is wonderful to know I am incorporating an ingredient enjoyed by our prophet and his progeny as I prepare meals for my family.

    With dua’a

  12. I enjoy Medjool dates any day of the year, we enjoy avocado shakes with dates, energy bars with dates and just plain with cold milk as a snack.my kids love the sweet taste,say they taste like caramels

  13. I like to put chopped medjool dates, roasted almond slivers, and a touch of honey on saltine crackers for sweet and salty snack.

    we like to make a home made “chex mix” which has almonds, raisins, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, Medjool dates”.

  14. Im a simple man. I just grab two fist fulls of dates, pit them, fill them with a nut, and eat them with milk 🙂

  15. Ramadan Kareem!

    There are so many ways to enjoy these dates! I have used them as a natural sweetener in homemade almond milk, smoothies, protein bars, etc.

    They are also good on their own. (Wish I had written this post after Iftar as my mouth is watering thinking about eating them.)

    I also love that they are grown in California so they are fresh and you know that they are humanely grown, harvested, and distributed. I am trying to become a more “ethical” shopper and notice where the things I buy come from.

  16. Whole dates with the pit replaced with a walnut, drizzled with tahini and sprinkled with coconut flakes is one of my favorite treats.

    Date tahini panini – my best brunch accidental creation
    Ingredients: (add or subtract to customize)
    Flat bread, wrap, or any thin bread of your choice
    Whole dates cut in half or into bits, with pits removed
    Walnut or pistachio chopped
    Tahini (sesame paste)
    Shredded coconut

    I made this in a large fry pan lightly greased. Lay one half of bread flat in pan over medium to medium low heat, arrange date pieces randomly sprinkle nuts and coconut, drizzle large spoon of tahini then slap the other half of flat bread on top. The tahini works as glue to keep everything together. Wait until warmed through or until slightly brown if you prefer a crisp crust flip and wait for other side to heat. Remove and cut into triangles, strips, or bite size sandwiches. Garnish with more nuts or coconut or serve with dipsu-rashi (tahini with date syrup) for dipping. I have made this both fancy and simple just by presenting it differently. Pretty healthy and so delicious I love that it is portable but I still get all the flavors I crave.

  17. Ramadan Kareem!

    Absolutely love Medjool dates on their own. I like making them into energy bars with nuts in a food processor. I roll out the date+nut paste, cut it up and refrigerate/freeze them for whenever I need a quick boost of energy.

  18. Our iftar is not complete without dates milk shakes. Also, I mix it with nits for healthy snacks. I simply enjoy eating them by themselves. I feel satisfied and happy when my toddler eats them as I do know they full of great nutrients.

  19. Almond milk plus dates plus banana Chia and hemp seeds blend all you have a superfood drink that can get you through your day full of energy. Super delicious, easy to make.

  20. Most of my cakes I bake I use dates instead of sugar. My cakes are full of nuts and dates. Super yummy healthy for my kidos
