Date paste is the healthiest, all-natural way to sweeten your baked goods (and more). It is an excellent natural sugar substitute and best of all it is entirely homemade so you know exactly what is in it. Dates are a fresh stone fruit that come from a date palm tree. They are naturally sweet, moist, juicy and have a distinct carmel-y flavor. From a health perspective they are full of amazing benefits. They contain loads of fiber and nutritious vitamins and minerals including zinc, copper, potassium, magnesium, manganese, vitamin B6, niacin, calcium, iron and vitamin K.
Recipe type: Sweetener
Serves: 1 cup
2 cups pitted dates
2 cup very hot water for soaking
Place dates in large mason jar and cover completely with boiling water (about 2 cups). Let dates soak at least 1 hour or for even better (think creamier) results let them soak overnight for 12 hours.
Process dates with 1 cup of the water used for soaking in a high speed blender or food processor on highest speed for a couple of minutes until creamy and smooth. The longer you let the motor run the better. Try for 5 minutes if you have time. If you want a thinner paste add more of the soaking water. For a thicker paste reduce the water. You can discard whatever soaking water you do not use.
Transfer date paste back to mason jar and store sealed in refrigerator for up to two months. This recipe makes a little over 1 cup of date paste depending on your dates and how much water you use.
