Date and Walnut Energy Balls


Dates, pitted


Rolled oats


Desiccated coconut (optional, for coating)


In a food processor, blend dates, walnuts, rolled oats, and a drizzle of honey until a sticky dough forms.

Roll the mixture into small balls using your hands.

If desired, roll each ball in desiccated coconut for added flavour and texture.

Refrigerate the energy balls for at least 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy these nutritious treats as a snack during Eid festivities.


Date and Almond Milkshake


Dates, pitted

Almonds, soaked and peeled

Milk (or almond milk for a dairy-free option)

Honey (optional, for added sweetness)

Ice cubes


In a blender, combine pitted dates, soaked almonds, milk, and honey (if using).

Blend until smooth and creamy, adding ice cubes for a refreshing chill.

Pour the milkshake into glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of chopped almonds or a drizzle of honey, if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy this luscious drink as a festive treat.


Date Juice


1 cup pitted dates

4 cups water

1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup (optional, for added sweetness)

Ice cubes (optional, for serving)


Begin by soaking the pitted dates in 1 cup of water for about 1-2 hours. This helps to soften the dates and makes them easier to blend.

After soaking, transfer the dates along with the soaking water into a blender.

Add the remaining 3 cups of water to the blender. If you prefer a sweeter juice, you can add honey or agave syrup at this stage.

Blend the mixture on high speed until smooth and well combined. This may take a few minutes depending on the power of your blender.

Once blended, strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a pitcher to remove any remaining pulp or fibers.

Discard the pulp and transfer the strained date juice back into the pitcher.

Refrigerate the date juice for at least 30 minutes to chill.

Serve the date juice over ice cubes if desired, and enjoy its sweet and refreshing flavour!
