Strawberries are one of our favorite fruits, and our kids too. We ALWAYS have them in our fridge. This bright, juicy, and sweet fruit is great for desserts; we will eat any treat with them! They are also a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. So why not pair with another great source of fiber, dates!! They are natural sugars making them perfect for desserts. We created this super easy, delicious, healthyish, and adorable no-bake bite-size treat perfect for the summertime. This one is truly super simple!!
The first step is to wash the strawberries and gently pat them dry with a paper towel. Next is to pit the strawberries. Using the tip of a knife or a strawberry huller (so worth it! so much easier to use a huller), remove the center. Set them aside.
Now, it’s time for the dates. If not pitted, remove their pits. Then, thinly slice them, or cut them into small pieces.
It’s time to assemble!! Fill the strawberries with the bits of dates, add a layer of whipping cream and top everything off with a slice of date and garnish with mint. Serve immediately.
If you want to make this dessert ahead of time, substitute the whipping cream for vanilla frosting or cream and leave it in the fridge until is time to serve.
For the strawberries to stand up, slice the bottom of the fruit to create a level base! Super easy and done in a snap!

Fall is upon us; it’s probably the most desired season! The temperature starts to drop, the air becomes crisp, and people are slowly drawn into hibernation mode. Hosting at home can be cozy this time of year; we are sharing 5 essentials for a fall tablecape that we hope help spark your inner hostess and most of all creativity.
