Spring is in full swing…
And, I’m bringing a rainbow of color to the table with this decadent dessert platter! This gluten free platter is super fast to pull together and perfect for spring entertaining. Simple, beautiful, and delicious!
Another fun way to serve Natural Delights Mini Medjools!
Recently I shared how Mini Medjools are a favorite addition to a bento style lunchbox or picnic basket. But today I’m taking it a step further and making them the star of the dessert show. The flavors are on point and they do not contain any added sugar!
Mini Medjools are available in six varieties and are made with luscious Medjool dates and wholesome ingredients such as nuts and seeds. They’re a great bite sized option for snacking or dessert! I built a colorful tray of naturally sweet treats around them and I’m so pleased with the result!
Spring Dessert Platter How To:
I started with a large oval serving platter, a versatile favorite in my kitchen!
Step One- Start with a variety of Mini Medjools in ramekins or small bowls in the center…
- Sweet and Salty Almond Mini Medjools: dates, almonds, tart dried cranberries
- Cacao Pecan Mini Medjools: dates, cacao powder, chopped pecans (tastes like brownie bites!)
- Coconut Mini Medjools: date rolls covered in coconut flakes
Step Two- Add a savory treat to balance the sweet! To save time, I used premade Prosciutto Panino (prosciutto wrapped mozzarella sticks), purchased at the grocery store. But, you can also make your own of course!
Step Three- Place strawberries around the center ramekin.
Step Four- Add a special mini treat! I used my no bakeCarrot Cheesecake Bites (GF/DF) but you can also substitute any other homemade or store bought bite sized goodie.
Step Five- Fill in with fruit from the center out in ROYGBIV order: raspberries, cantaloupe, kiwi, and blackberries/blueberries. Mango would be a good addition for yellow but I ran out of space!
Try this for Easter brunch or any spring entertaining you have coming up! And, because no cooking is required (bonus!), it’s quick to create, serve, and enjoy…
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! xx
