This is the recipe for adding sweetener to your Almond Milk. It can be used for sweetener in other recipes as well.
Blend 1 lb of pitted honey dates with about 1/2 cup of water, for about a minute, turning with a spatula and adding more water if necessary, until smooth, thick paste is formed.
If using a variety of date other than soft honey dates, soak dates in water to cover for 2 hours before making paste. Then, drain the dates and proceed.
Use blender or food processor to make date paste. Make large amount of date paste at once. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to two months to use whenever you need a sweetener.
