    This recipe tastes better warm than cold, but it is good either way. 15 dates are perhaps too many if you are using high quality, plump, large dates. Makes it almost too datey. An excellent Suhoor meal which has not left me hungry yet today and it's been 8 hours. So easy to prepare!  -  13 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love the taste of dates in this.  -  02 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is good, plenty sweet. Next time I will only use 2 T sugar and maybe only 10 dates, maybe add some nuts, and it will be great for breakfast. I thought it was a bit weird putting it in the blender, but it gave it more of a breakfast porridge texture that was okay. Next time I probably won't use the blender though. I liked it both warm and cold.  -  25 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
