These dates ladoo were in our wishlist for the last so many months but this time we finally made it on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, because there’s nothing like homemade sweets when it comes to the day of celebrating most sweet and loving relationship of brothers and sisters.
One important thing we would like to mention that merely addition of word “sugar free” doesn’t make these dates ladoo suitable for diabetics. You need to consult only your doctor if making or serving to diabetics. We are not the experts to make any kind of recommendations.

* this is not mandatory to add all the mentioned ingredients and that too in the same quantity. These dates ladoo can be prepared even without dry fruits or with the least dry fruits. Or if you don’t want to spend much, just add raisins and coconut. In every case, you are definitely going to have tasty dates ladoo.
* You can reduce or enhance the quantity of ingredients as per your requirement.
* While keeping the ingredients ready, we started chopping all the dry fruits with knife. Suddenly we realized that this way we need a whole day to complete the task. Then thought of another idea. Took a ziplock/polythene bad, added all dry fruits one after another, and crushed them with heavy weight.
* If the mixture turns cool, you won’t be able to give them a shape of ladoos. But there’s nothing to worry. If the mixture turns cool, just microwave it for a minute or you can reheat the mixture slightly to make it warm. Then again start making ladoos.
