“Taken from the Super easy in the Thermomix. Pretty darn easy in a blender or food processor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Squash your dates into a 2 cup (500ml) container. The healthy foodie uses a beautiful cut glass jar in her recipe. I didn't have one of those, so I crammed those puppies into a grocery-store tupperware knockoff. Pour the water over all. Cover with the airtight cover. Let sit overnight , or at least 12 hours.
  2. Wake up, have a coffee, walk the dog - then -- Place all ingredients in your handy-dandy Thermomix. If you don't have a Thermomix, stop and cry for a moment, then get out your blender or food processor. The recipe will still work - you just won't be as cool as you could be.
  3. If you're using the Tmix, mix 1 minute/speed 4.5. Scrape down. Mix for 1 minute/speed 5.5. Scrape down. Repeat as necessary. It took me 3 minutes in all. Resist the urge to crank the speed up to 8 or 9 - the high speed just flings dates everywhere. If you're using the blender or food processor you'll want to mix and scrape until you have a smooth paste - probably 5-8 minutes.
