Blessing for Dates


I have a question:
If you eat dates in baked apples or grinded in smoothies do they have a special place because they are a special fruit and require the 3 faceted blessing after/ birchas meein shalosh (as we do after the 7 fruits of eretz yisroel)?



  1. In order to be obligated to recite birchas meein shalosh, one has to eat at least a kezayis of the dates. In a stuffed apple, that is somewhat improbable, which means that the correct Brocho Achrona, after blessing, is “Borei Nefashos.”
