the ultimate all natural sweetener



200 grams (7 oz.) pitted, soft dates
1 thick slice of organic lemon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon miso (or some salt)
300 ml (10 fl. oz) of water


  1. Place dates, lemon slice, lemon juice, miso (or salt) in a food processor together with 10 fl. oz./300 ml of water.
  2. Puree to a smooth cream.
  3. Spoon it in a clean jar with a lid and keep it in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.


Tipp: Put it in an ice cube tray and freeze it for an hour. Then “knock” cubes from the tray and transfer them to freezer bags. You can keep those date paste cubes for up to 3 months in your freezer.
