Date Pops Recipe

date pops ramadan food

This is the first time I have made these, or I should say that my children made them! They are so easy to make and taste yummy!


Dates (remove the stones)
Decorating items (could be chocolate strands, dessicated coconut, almond flakes or any other decoration you choose)
Optional: I used a teaspoon of Orange Flower Water to the date mixture for an added taste.

Step 1: Using a fork mash the dates up, if the dates are very hard you could try and soften them by steaming them first. You could also as an option add a little orange flower water or another flavouring if you wish.

Step 2: Once the date is mashed up make some small little balls of dates and place on a plate.

Step 3: Place some decorations into a bowl and then roll the ball of date into the decoration and make into a ball shape again pressing on the decoration slightly.

Step 4: Place a lollystick into ball and allow the date to harden into shape. Then they are ready to eat!


  1. Sallam karima! your date pops looks delicious. I must make it today for aftar...Thanks for sharing..

  2. You just gave me idea! I made my date balls yesterday, I inserted almond and hazelnut inside, and dipped the balls in chocolate. Thanks for the share. :)

  3. Wonderful idea. We made baklawa pops last year and they were so time consuming. These are easy and ready to eat in no time. Can't wait to try them tonight at our iftar!

  4. It looks good and so sweet!!
