Whole30 Sugar Substitute {Date Paste}

Whole30 Sugar Substitute {Date Paste}
Date paste is a great natural sugar substitute, expensive to buy, and super easy to make at home. It can be used in a variety of recipes instead of sugar, honey and maple syrup. This recipe is my life saver when on Whole30.


  • 1 cup Medjool dates (pitted, packed)
  • 1 cup water (slightly warm)
Prep time:
5 minutes
Yield: 1 cup | Prep time: 5 minutes |


1. If your Medjool dates are dry, presoak them in warm water for about 20-30 minutes.
2. Combine dates and water in a blender (I used an immersion blender). Blend until smooth.

3. Transfer to a mason jar. Refrigerate for up to 2-3 months.
