Seeing as there’s a lot of conversation going on about whether agave has a place in a healthy right now, I’ve made a little video showing you how to simply make a whole food sweetener from just dates and water.
1 Cup (16 tbs), stoned
1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
1⁄2 Medium, juiced
1. Remove the stone from the dates and place in a bowl.
2. In a blender, pour the water and add in the dates.
3. Add in the lemon juice and blend for 35 to 40 seconds or until the mixture forms into thick paste.
4. In a clean sealable jar, pour the date paste, seal tightly and refrigerate until needed.
