If you've yet to try date paste, you are missing out on a delicious, and Whole30 approved sweetener! Date paste has a natural caramel flavour, is high in fibre, and it's crazy easy to make!
Now some people are going to be like, "What the heck do you use this brown mess for?" Valid question with a simple answer. Use it anywhere you wood use honey/maple syrup/sugar. My favorite use is to sweeten coconut whipped cream with fresh summer berries or to add it to my Whole30 ketchup recipe (post to come!).
So, let's get this started (because it's such a loooong recipe! lol)
Dried pitted dates
Whew... That's was grueling. Seriously though, this is super easy folks!
1. Pack a glass container (I use a 1L mason jar) with as many dates as you want. Hint: Half of the 1L mason jar ends up providing you with enough date paste to fill a 500mL mason jar perfectly.
2. Pour enough boiling water over the dates so that they are just covered with water. Allow to cool and place in refrigerator overnight.
3. Place in Vitamix/blender, turn it on, and forget about it for 5ish minutes. The paste should be smooth, fluffy, and delish!
You're Welcome :)
