This recipe is full of goodness

Medjool dates are extremely nutritious and boast a good fibre content as well as B vitamins and magnesium. Coconut oil is rich in medium chain triglycerides which are a healthy type of fat used more instantly for energy. Then there’s the orange juice which is rich in vitamin C – an important antioxidant.
