Date Paste: A Complete Guide + VIDEO + Recipes!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


The ultimate natural, healthy, fruit-based sweetener made from 2 simple ingredients and in just minutes!


  • 1 cup Medjool dates (packed, about 10-12)
  • 2/3 cup water


  1. Pit the dates.
  2. Add to a blender with the water.
  3. Turn on the blender and immediately turn the speed up to high. This will help break down the dates quickly so your date paste is smooth and chunk-free without having to add more water to get it to blend.
  4. If it really won’t blend, stop, shake it, and try again. Add more water only if absolute necessary.
  5. Once it is smooth, transfer to an airtight jar/container. It will keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
