how to make date syrup
Date sauce requires literally close to zero effort! So, it’s well worth it- in my opinion. Using soft medjool dates is the best way to make this sauce.
Simply incorporate two ingredients: water and dates. Then blend, blend, blend in a food processor (or high powered blender) until ultra creamy and smooth! You might have to periodically scrap the sides of the food processor during the blending process to result in perfect creamy caramely texture.
*Pro tip: Puree until it’s so silky smooth that you could dive into it- if the jar was a pool and the date sauce filled it. Make it swim worthy, k? 😉
I took a little vacation from work this week. The little breather was exceptional; super rejuvenating! I spent time with friends, climbing rocks, soaking in sunshine, and sleeping in. Something about learning to rest seems to be a big part of my journey. I never wanted to rest- prior to chronic illness, I didn’t see the value in sleep. Thanks to my idealistic view, I thought the best option was never to sleep; and somehow, I would miraculously still function. Turns out I was wrong, hehe.
So, take the weekend rest, rejuvenate, and do things you love. Cook, bake, make this date sauce, and put it on something yummy!
