Even if we do not use any kind of sugars (refined sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, agave syrup, coco sugar, nectars…) we enjoy having and baking desserts so we normally use DATES. We also use these ingredients to sweet our favourite desserts:
Applesauce | Cinnamon or cacao | Ripe bananas | Dry figs | Dehydrated fruit | Pumpkin | Sweet Potato
Our favourite Healthy Sweetener for our Dessert Recipes.
It is SIMPLE, SWEET but WHOLEFOOD made only with 2 INGREDIENTS.
- 1 cup dates (140g)
- 5 tbsp water
- Add dates to hot water and let there 10 minutes.
- After, blend the dates, remember to quit the pit first, with 5 tbsp of the hot water in a food processor or blender until a smooth consistency.
- Refrigerate in a clean jar for a week.
This recipe makes 2/3 cup Date Paste. If you want, you can double the recipe.
TIP: I usually heat the water in the microwave (1:30 minutes) and then I add the dates.
