½ cup of dates, pitted
1 cup of water (or more as needed)
- Soak the fruit for 1-2 hours. If you start with very soft dates, you may only need to soak for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Drain off the water and add to a high speed blender.
- Add just enough water to help blend the dates. Start on low to break up the fruit and then increase speed.
This mixture will keep for over a week in the refrigerator. Alternatively, it can be frozen for several months. It will not freeze solid, which makes it great for scooping out just what you need.
Other fruit like dried mango or apricot make a great fruit paste as well.
