10ouncesdried pitted datesI just grabbed the inexpensive kind that my market shelves near the raisins
1can pure pumpkin puree
1/4teaspoonreal vanilla extract
Place dates in a container and cover with filtered water. Put lid on container and leave in the refrigerator overnight.
Drain water from dates (you can save this water and add it to smoothies if you’d like!), and place in a food processor (I used my mini processor – it was the perfect size) and pulse until a smooth paste is made. (Congrats, you just made Date Paste!)
If you’re using a mini processor, you’ll want to transfer the date paste into a large bowl at this point. If you’re using a full size processor, go ahead and finish it in there.
Add remaining ingredients to date paste and blend until smooth (you can use a stick blender, electric mixer, or just continue pulsing in your large food processor).
Store in your fridge for up to a week, or in your freezer for several months.
