How to make nougat recipe with no added sugar:
Put in blender, almonds, dates, coconut, a little cinnamon and blend well. Add the orange juice and zest, continue beating and mixing until a compact mass.
The dough needs to be pretty thick, if not, añadidle a little more grated coconut (if you add a little coconut, changed a little composition per serving).
