Replace Processed Sugar From Your Diet With Medjool Dates!

Medjool Date Paste


  • 2 cups pitted Natural Delights® Medjool Dates, coarsely chopped (about 20 dates)
  • 1/2 cup very hot water


An excellent natural sugar substitute, spread on bread or toast in place of jam. Also great served with a pork roast, ham or chicken.

  1. Place dates and water in a food processor. Process until fairly smooth to make a coarse paste, or process longer to make a creamy paste, scraping down sides as necessary.
  2. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Tip: To make a spiced date paste, stir together ½ cup date paste and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice or ground ginger.

Yields about 1 3/4 cups
5 minutes
