Calories 39kcal


  • walnuts or pecans 1 nut per date
  • 6 dates - I used Medjool dates
  • 3 teaspoons  vegan cream cheese (1/2 teaspoon per date) - I used Tofutti


  • Crush nuts with mortar and pestle or coffee grinder.
  • Slice each date down one side and stuff with crushed nuts and vegan cream cheese.
  • With a knife, scoop out a tiny bit of the vegan cream cheese. Working with your fingers, roll it into a little strip. Repeat process making four strips for each date.


To make the strips it is best to have the vegan cream cheese as cold as possible, but don't put in the freezer!
So if you have a lot of stuffed dates to make, I would work quickly or in batches. The more you handle the vegan cream cheese, the softer it gets and is harder to sculpt.
