Dates are a super nutritious natural sweetener full of caramelly good flavor. Pureeing them into this delicious date paste makes them easy to use in lots of ways.
Dates used to scare me. I hate to say it, but I always thought they looked like cockroaches. Ick- not interested.
But then I read how many nutrients there are in dates. Interested.
Then I heard that when pureed, dates become a caramel-like elixir. Very interested.
So of course I had to give them a try. I was sold immediately. And although I still think they look like cockroaches (they do!) I’m a big fan and frequently have a jar of date paste in my fridge.
Let me tell you how I make it and how I use it. I know you’re gonna want to try it too.
