Bring orange juice and spices to a boil. Reduce temperature to a gentle boil until the orange juice is reduced to the consistency of light syrup (about ten minutes). The mixture will reduce by half but still look like liquid.
Let cool to room temp and the mixture will thicken further.
Spread your fave cheese across a serving bowl or plate, drizzle with orange reduction and top with dates and almonds. Serve with your favourite bread or crackers.
Note: if using vegan ricotta, whip in a little more water as it processes to have a lighter, creamier texture!
