I am such a sucker for a sweet treat. Before I went vegan I used to sit in my room with a king size 3 Musketeers bar and that was like heaven to me. I have since found healthier options to control my sweet tooth, one of which is the deliciously simple raw date syrup that I use as my sweetener in basically everything from oatmeal to waffles to cakes. I’ve been guilty of sitting on the kitchen floor eating it out of the jar with a spoon…it’s that good! The best part is this syrup is totally clean and totally vegan!
30 small dates (I use mini medjool)
1 ½ cups filtered water
1 tsp lemon juice
Remove the date pits and place the dates in a bowl; cover with warm water and let sit for one hour could be less, could be more. When the date’s look and feel like a sponge you can start to blend them.
Once the dates have soaked add all of ingredients to high speed blender. Blend for 60-75 seconds, or until smooth. Transfer to an air tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Top your goodies. Yum! Yum! Yum!
