This is a great simple raw recipe for date paste, we use it as a sugar substitute in several of the food items we create. You can make it in bulk or as needed for a specific recipe. I typically use as a one to one replacement for refined sugar in recipes.
- 20 dates Medjool Dates
- 2 tbsp Water
Soak the dates in warm water for 30 min to an hour. You’ll just need enough water to cover the dates.
Remove dates from water and remove the pits.
Place dates and the 2 tbsp of water in a food processor and puree. (I like to use the water from soaking)
You can store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you’d like to make it as needed you can use the ratio of 3 dates to every 1/2 tsp of water. Always soak your dates before using. Depending on the amount of time the dates were soaking, you may need to add little more water. It should be a thick creamy texture. ENJOY!
