Date Paste

Date paste is a healthy alternative to sugar. It's made with a whole fruit and still includes all the fibre, vitamins and minerals as well as the sweetness.

Just put as many dried dates as desired in a bowl and cover with water. Leave to soak for a few hours or overnight. Then put dates and water in a small blender and blend till a smooth paste is formed. Keep in the fridge for up to a week to use in place of sugar.
