Finding a healthy, REAL sweetener is no easy task! Luckily, dates are nature’s candy and are loaded with fiber, making them a no-brainer choice for natural sweetness! I originally used Date Paste instead of agave or maple syrup in other raw dessert recipes to better control my blood sugar spikes. Enjoy this amazingly smooth and sweet paste.
prep time: 5 min
2 cups medjool dates, pitted
½ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy.
