Banana Date Cups
Yvonne Maffei | My Halal Kitchen
These single-serving cups are so light and healthy for Iftar and contain many great ingredients you might typically serve separately. Prepare everything but the bananas ahead of time and you have a quick and easy dish to serve to guests at your next Iftar gathering.
2 cups naturally flavored yogurt
4 tablespoons creme fraiche (optional)
1 banana, cut small
4 tablespoons salted almonds, roughly chopped
4 large Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
Shredded coconut or coconut flakes
4 teaspoons honey
In 4 small serving cups, divide the yogurt into each parts. Add one tablespoon of creme fraiche to each one, too. Add the cut banana in equal parts, then one tablespoon of the chopped almonds to each cup. Drizzle a teaspoon of honey in each cup then sprinkle with the coconut flakes and serve.
