Date Syrup

I'm not talking about naturally flavored, no sugar added type of marketing gimmicks.

Date Syrup is simple to make, with dried dates which are a whole food, mixed with refreshing punch of citrus from a whole lemon (yes, even the skin and pulp, all of it!) blended together to make a sweet, thick, fiber rich and healthy sweetener that can be added to oatmeal, chia pudding, or to baking goodies like brownies for that fudge like consistency. Need I say more? Yummmm

I love to make Date Syrup in batches and store in a refrigerator for up to 1 week, but to be honest it doesn't last that long in our house.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Yields 4-6 Servings


  • 1 cup of whole, pitted, dried dates

  • 1 whole lemon (diced, skin included, seeds removed)

  • 1 cup of hot water

  • freshly graded nutmeg (optional)


  • Blend all ingredients together until desired consistency (paste like or more chunky, depending on your preference).

  • Sprinkle with freshly graded nutmeg (optional).

  • Pour in a glass container, cover and refrigerate.

  • Date Syrup will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator.

  • Enjoy.
