When it comes to the holidays, there are WAY too many decadent treats that find their way into your belly. Cookies here, tarts there, and pies galore! Sure, that is delightful if you want to gain 100 lbs over the holidays, BUT if you want to find a healthy, yet decadent, tasty treat, I’ve got you covered.
At parties, strawberries are usually either put out on a fruit platter or dipped in chocolate. Well, let's do something different! I always crave flavors of cinnamon and maple, which are usually found in baked goods this time of year, so I mixed them with freshly ground cashew butter and chopped dates to add a nice flavor and a pop of sweetness. I simply stuff the strawberries with the cashew-date mixture, smoothed off the ends with a butter knife, and voila! You can eat them as a healthy snack, a light dessert, or even bring them as a dinner party appetizer - the options are endless!

4 T cashew butter 4 pinch ground cinnamon 2 dates, finely chopped 1 pinch kosher salt 2 tsp maple syrup
In a small mixing bowl, mix together chopped dates, cashew butter, cinnamon, salt, and maple syrup. Using a pairing knife, remove the core of the strawberry and stuff with the cashew butter mixture. Eat whole as little poppers and enjoy!
*If making ahead for a party, set out strawberries 30 minutes ahead of time so that cashew mixture inside can come to room temperature.
