  • Add more water if it’s difficult to blend or too thick.
  • Now store this yummy date paste in a covered glass jar (not air tight)
  • Always keep it in the refrigerator (fridge)

Notes

Tip-
You can keep the soaked dates along with the soaking water, in the fridge in an open glass container.
 
They remain fresh even longer than 1-3 months.
 
Blend them/crush then/chop them as per your recipe's demand.
 
Dates contain natural sugar,  and surprisingly they have a low/medium glycemic index score because they also contain a good amount of fiber.
 
Fiber slows the release of carbohydrates and gives you sustainable energy rather than spiking your blood sugar crazy high.
 
They’re also low in fat and packed with nutrients like potassium
         (50% more potassium by weight than a banana),
         copper, magnesium, vitamin B6, niacin, calcium, iron, and vitamin K.
 
⚠️Body breaks down REFINED SUGAR  rapidly, causing a SPIKE in insulin and blood sugar levels. 
 
It gets digested immediately, you don't feel full after you finish eating, no matter how many CALORIES you have consumed. 
 
The fiber in the WHOLE FRUIT slows down the metabolism, as fruit in the gut expands to make you feel full.
