1/2cupAlmond Plant-Based Milk, Unsweetened(Water, Unsweetened Juice, or other preferred Plant-based Milk)
1/2tspPure Vanilla Extract(alcohol-free used)
Be sure all pits are removed from dates. Weigh out 8oz of dates (about 15).
Heat the milk on stovetop or a microwave until warm, but not boiling. Combine the warm milk, dates, and vanilla extract into a blender or food processor fitted with “S” blade (see recipe note below). Cover with lid and set aside for 15 minutes. Just a reminder, I chose to use unsweetened Almond milk, but water, or unsweetened juice works. I prefer milk for a creamier texture.
Process the dates and the liquid until completely smooth. Transfer date paste to a mason jar and store in the refrigerator up to to 2 weeks.
Tip: I have found that using the food processor works better when “doubling” the ingredients.
