Learn how to make date paste with just 2 ingredients in a high-speed blender. You’ll end up with creamy and sweet caramel deliciousness.
Soak time: 30 minutes
- 400g (14.1oz) dates, pitted
- 475g (16.8oz) water
- First, in case the dates you have come with pits, remove them. If your dates are pitted, there’s no need to worry about that.
- Next, throw your pitted dates into a high-speed blender with filtered water and let soak for at least 30 minutes. To shorten the soaking time, cut the dates into smaller pieces. The soak time also depends on the variety of your dates – whether they are juicier or drier.
When the dates are well soaked, turn on the blender and process until you have a smooth and creamy paste without any visible date pieces.
Regulate the consistency by adding more or less water.
Use any preferred date varieties (see more above). I utilised Deglet Noor pitted dates.
Feel free to add a bit of cinnamon and/or ginger to your date paste for flavour.
