    How long do you soak the dates for? Also, when soaking the dates, is it same process as sprouting and dehydrating where you have to add salt to the water?

  2. Heidi says:

    Great Recipe!!

    Can also add 1 cup of coconut cream in place of the maple syrup and water – add stevia to sweeten. Yum!

  3. Sarah says:

    You mentioned somewhere and I can’t recall where that you can make this with your chocolate protein. How much and is it just an extra ingredient or in place of another one?

    • I would do chocolate protein powder instead of or as a part of the cacao ingredient. You could do 1/2 cup protein powder and 1/4 cup cacao or however you like. If you want a more chocolate flavor, you can always add a little more cacao than what is called for.

  9. Alyssa says:

    I have raw cacao nibs. Can those be ground to use as a substitute for cocoa powder?

  10. Arlene says:

    Silly question… Do you take the seeds out of the dates??

  11. Judy Bower says:

    Wow! This recipe is so good. Thanks Dr. Axe

  12. Mrbill47 says:

    Good recipe (no low calorie, low fat or “Lite” ingredients), but the dates are an option, and organic honey can be used instead of maple syrup. We use organic dark cacao. Excellent when topped with real organic whipped cream, or, fold in whipped cream to make mousse! A staple dessert at our house. :-)

  13. Tammy Mikeska says:

    How many grams of sugar is in this? I’d love to try but it feels scary because all the dates and maple may really feed pathogens in the gut. What do you think?

  14. Kathy says:

    I can’t stand dates, what other fruits can be substituted?

  15. maggie says:

    Dr: I read that raw honey can carry bacteria that causes food poisoning; is this true?
