Date Paste

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!
