Date Paste

5 from 3 votes


  • 8 ounces Medjool dates - pitted
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanlla powder or vanilla extract


  • Soak the pitted dates in the water over night or at least 4 hours to help them soften. Place in a mini food processor and blend until smooth. It can be refrigerated or frozen. I freeze mine because I don't use it very often. It can be used to sweeten baked goods and desserts.
