Sometimes I'll use a combination of dates, raisins and dried cranberries for a different variation.

My husband is a new diabetic and since I only wanted one serving I only used the water and not the orange juice. But if memory serves me correctly I have used orange juice before with delicious results. Thanks for this great recipe.
