3/4 cup Seedless / Pitted Dates
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Soak seedless / pitted dates overnight or at least for 5 hours.
Grind soaked dates to a smooth paste and squeeze lemon into it.
Use fresh, homemade date syrup for all your beverages, sweets and desserts, instead of sugar, honey or jaggery.
Store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Why not honey, sugar or jaggery? Sugar and Jaggery are
processed foods. Although jaggery is healthier than brown sugar, which,
in turn, is healthier than white sugar, all forms of processed foods are
unhealthy when compared to whole plant foods. Honey is healthwise as
good as jaggery, which isn't saying much. In addition to not being very
healthy, honey production kills millions of bees every year, affecting
our environment adversely. The best sweetener alternative is a whole
fruit or dry fruit. The easiest method of using these is date syrup, as
it does not involve peeling or chopping.
