Recipe: Date Syrup

I started using date syrup as my sweetener of choice after reading Dr. Michael Greger’s How Not to Die Cookbook. Using his recipe as inspiration, I played with the ratios and came up with this slightly thicker syrup. I always have date syrup on hand to use as a substitute for maple syrup, sugar, or other sweetener in dressings, sauces, and baking. Date syrup adds a natural sweetness that I really enjoy!

Note: I recommend using a high-powered blender. If you’re using a standard blender, chop the dates and soak them in the water for 30 minutes prior to blending.
