Recipe Notes

Soaking the dates helps to soften them for easy blending, without this step the mixture can be a bit dry and crumbly.

For even more lime flavor, you can even grate a little lime zest into the coconut-almond-date mixture. Bam! I went a little nuts zesting lime over the top of these bad boys; I love the pop of citrus!
