A Bit About Dates

There are many varieties of dates and they all have wonderful health benefits but Medjool dates have some specific characteristics that make them perfect for things such as this. They are extra soft and they are exquisitely rich and have a caramel taste to them. Eaten plain they are almost like candy.

Instructions

Remove the seeds by squeezing the dates. Don’t miss any!

Soak the dates in enough water to cover them anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. They just need to get extra soft for easy blending. Here's a healthy fruit dip recipe that takes 5 minutes to make (after you soak the dates). Use it as is for dipping, make candy apples and much more!blank630x20

Drain off the water but save a little in case you need it. Place dates in a food processor. You want a paste like smooth consistency. You can  add a tablespoon or so of the date water if they are too dry. (If your using the paste for something such as our Candy Apple Recipe you want it to be very thick.)Here's a healthy fruit dip recipe that takes 5 minutes to make (after you soak the dates).

You will need to stop blending and scrape the sides occasionally then start blending again. Blend till smooth. Here's a healthy fruit dip recipe that takes 5 minutes to make (after you soak the dates). Use it as is for dipping, make candy apples and much more!blank630x20

I like mine a bit chunky so I didn’t blend it quite as much. If you add a tiny bit of water it makes a smoother dip. Your date paste will keep up to three months in your freezer.

  2. I love using dates for cookie balls and snacks, in place of sugar or other sweeteners, and I can’t wait to try them as a dip! Plus, it’s a great way to use up any extra dates and store away for another time. YUM!
