 Ingredients List

  • 225g fresh pitted dates ”“ approx 10 ”“ 15 dates depending on their size
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 250g organic dried apricots, chopped
  • 150 g (1 ½ cups) almond meal / ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 80 g white chocolate, melted for decoration ”“ optional (please see other great topping ideas below)


Combine dates, orange zest, apricots, vanilla, ground almonds, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a food processor.

Process until mixture is combined and looks like fine crumbs.
Spoon mixture into a large bowl and add 1 ”“ 2 tablespoons orange juice then mix again. Your pudding mix should come together in the hands when lightly squeezed.

Divide puddings into 6 small puddings. The best way to do this is to line the base of your desired mould with glad wrap and press the pudding mixture into it firmly.

Invert the pudding and remove the glad wrap. Repeat until all the puddings are formed.

Melt white chocolate in a small bowl that is set over a simmering pot of water.

Spoon a little white chocolate over the tops of the puddings if using and garnish. You can use goji berries, fresh cherries or anything you fancy. Alternatively omit the topping if you wish.

Arrange onto a serving plate and set aside until needed.
Store in the fridge for upto 2 weeks.

I love to make double the mix so I have extra for second helpings.
Serve puddings with cold mango coconut custard or warm with proper vanilla bean custard.
