With no added sugars or fats, this dip has an indulgent flavor that's addicting. You might want to use it on lots more than fruit slices--toast, cake, ice cream, rice cakes... With a nice assortment of fruit it would make a healthy but very satisfying dessert. 

Makes about 1 + 1/3 cup

Add medjool dates, walnuts, and water to the pitcher of a high-speed blender. If you have time, let them sit for 10-30 minutes to soften.

  • 10 medjool dates, pitted (6 ounces)
  • 3/8 cup walnuts
  • 5/8 cup hot water

Add the vanilla and cinnamon, if using. Puree on high speed until completely smooth, a minute or two. Add more water, a tablespoon at a time, if needed to keep things moving.

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Nutrition: Whole-food unprocessed

Timing: 15 minutes (including 10 minutes soaking time)
