Energize with a tropical vacation for your tastebuds. The blend of mango, pineapple, coconut, and Medjool dates is beyond paradise.


  • 15 Medjool dates, pits removed

  1. Place all ingredients except for 1/2 cup of the coconut into a large food processor
  2. Pulse ingredients a few times, stirring if the dates begin to clump together
  3. Process until ingredients begin to form a large ball of “dough” (Stir if necessary but continue to process until thick dough forms)
  4. Line an 8×8 baking dish with plastic wrap
  5. Sprinkle remaining coconut onto plastic wrap
  6. Press large ball of dough into dish, shaping it into a large square
  7. Cover and chill for an hour or overnight
  8. Cut into squares, flip over and enjoy

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
