Date sweetener

Date sweetener is an all natural and minimally processed sweetener made from only 1 ingredient. When used according to program principles it's Whole30 friendly too!
Servings 2 1/3 C


  • 1 pressed C / 215 g pitted dates (I use Sayer dates) or ⅔ pressed C date paste
  • 2 C / 500 ml water
  • 1/4 tsp fine pink Himalayan salt or sea salt


  • Combine everything in a bullet blender, blender or food processor and blend into a smooth, thick and luscious paste.  
  • Season to taste.


  • Transfer the date sweetener to clean glass jars and store in the fridge for a couple of weeks. The sweetener freezes well too and can be stored in the freezer for months. I like to freeze it in ice cube trays, to easily use a cube or two, when cooking.
