Date Paste

Date paste could be the easiest natural sweetener you can make! Use it in your oatmeal, almond milk, shakes and many other dishes to add a hint of healthy sweetness.

I have had a serious obsession with dates lately. I put them in my oatmeal every morning, and I’ve started eating them when I get a sweet craving. They are just too damn delicious, do you agree?

I recently completed the Rouxbe Forks Over Knives Cooking Course, and one of the recipes we made was date paste. Since I try to avoid processed sugars as much as I can, this was such a brilliant solution for a sugar substitute and I had to share it with all of you! And it’s sooooo ridiculously easy. All you need is water and dates.

To make, add the dates and water to a food processor, blend and voila! I love adding this paste to my oatmeal, shakes, and desserts, but I can only imagine how many uses there are for this sweet addition.

I also fed it to my super adorable nephew as baby food! He loved it. I don’t have a picture of me actually feeding him but I’ll just post this one because I just can’t resist the cuteness. Being an aunt is the BEST. <3

I hope you enjoy making your very own date paste! Save some for me. 😉
