So this is a quick Treat of the Week that I feel is a cheat because:

1.) It’s not actu­ally my recipe
2.) It’s not so much a recipe as it is food assembly

Alas, it’s in align­ment with my cleanse. Oh yes, and it’s delicious.

I used this recipe, but added some lime juice and zest to the mix– deli­cious! These tasty morsels and hit­ting the spot when the choco­late crav­ings kick in. Plus, we all know that I have a soft spot for pis­ta­chios, so that doesn’t hurt either.

Do you have any sim­ple sweet treats from nature that you turn to?

    That is such a sim­ple but awe­some idea! I’ve stuffed dates with almond and coconut but­ter before, but never thought to use blended pis­ta­chios. Some­times the sim­plest treats are the best!

    That sounds gooood! These days, my sim­ple sweet treats from nature are clemen­tines — I can’t have enough of those juicy pieces of sunshine!

    This looks really good, but to be per­fectly hon­est (and bor­ing) I eat my dates straight up. A cou­ple of plain dates after din­ner hits just the right level of sweet­ness for me. I like to keep them in the refrig­er­a­tor so they get firm and chewy. Maybe I’ll make these for my din­ner guests this week­end instead of just adding plain dates to a fruit plate.

    Frozen grapes!

    I’d love the taste of dates but can­not eat them after a hor­ri­fy­ing expe­ri­ence in Morocco. The pis­ta­chio paste is to die for though!
