My distant cousin just sent me this recipe and I intend to make it as soon as I get more dates (I completely ran out from making date balls so many times... haha).
1/4 - 1/2 cup almond milk (or other nut milk)
1 cup dates (pitted and tightly packed)
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
Blend in a high-powered blender until smooth. Serve with sliced apples. You can't believe how much this tastes like caramel!
