Whether you’re looking to purchase date paste in bulk for wholesale or just want to try out a few recipes at home, we’ve got you covered!
First, a little bit about date paste and where to find it. Kartago’s date paste and organic date paste are made from 100% Deglet Noor dates, a variety known for its sweet and rich flavor. The dates are ground down into a smooth paste with a consistency similar to honey, and the resulting product is 100% natural, with no added preservatives or sweeteners.
Now, let’s get to the fun part – the recipes! Here are five delicious ways to use organic date paste in your cooking and baking:
- Add depth and flavor to sauces and marinades
Date paste is a great addition to any marinade or sauce. It’s especially good when paired with ginger, garlic, and citrus juices. Use it as a base for a bbq sauce or mix it into ketchup to give it more depth and flavor.
- Use it in baking
You can use Kartago’s date paste to sweeten anything you’re baking – it’s delicious! Simply use a 1:1 ratio, replacing the sugar with an equal amount of date paste. You may need to add a little more liquid to your recipe, as the date paste will thicken it. For a flavor boost, you can also try adding some spices like cinnamon or cardamom.
- Smoothies and oatmeal
Date paste is the perfect way to sweeten up your morning meal. It adds natural sweetness without any added refined sugar, and it can also help boost your metabolism. You can also mix it with a little water to create a syrup-like consistency, which is perfect for drizzling over pancakes or waffles.
- Make your own energy balls
Date paste is a key ingredient in homemade energy balls or protein balls. To make your power balls, mix date paste with nuts, seeds, and other ingredients you like, such as cocoa powder or coconut. Then roll the mixture into small balls. These make a tasty, portable snack that’s perfect for a quick energy boost on the go.
- Make a healthier caramel sauce
Date paste is a great natural sweetener and can be used to make a healthier version of caramel sauce. Heat a little date paste with coconut milk and sea salt until it reaches a thick, syrupy consistency. Use this sauce to top ice cream, drizzle over cakes or cookies—or mix into your coffee or latte!
