  • 180 g medjool dates (10 large dates)
  • 250 ml nut milk (or whatever milk you buy)
  • 160 g dark chocolate (or chocolate chips)
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Roughly tear the dates, discarding the pits and soak in just boiled water for 10 minutes. This will help to soften them.
  • Heat up the nut milk in a pan (or in a jug in the micrwave) and set aside.
  • Finely slice some dark chocolate for decoration (or set some choc chips aside) with a knife, you want about 2 tablespoons of shaved chocolate.
  • Chop the rest of the chocolate and add to a blender or food processor, then pour over the hot nut milk. Drain the soft dates and add them and the salt, then carefully blend until smooth.
  • Divide the mixture between 6 glasses, ramekins or jam jars and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours until set. Cover them if you are keeping them in the fridge for longer.
  • To serve scatter over the chocolate shavings and any other toppings you like.
  • Enjoy!


  • You can use dark chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate.
  • You can use your regular milk.
  • You can use another type of date but you won't get that toffee-like flavour.
  • Jam jars are great for storing these in the fridge, covered.
  • If you are serving these with whipped vegan cream, don't add it until you are just about o serve them. Store them in the fridge without cream.
  • For a Christmas dessert you could add orange extract, orange zest and nutmeg.
