Making a healthier twist and the standard “caramel”/candy apple. This date mix can be used as a lower fat dip for apples (instead of a peanut butter) or as a coating to make candy apples like I did!
2 cups dates, pitted and mashed
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp raw sugar (or coconut sugar)
1. In a microwave safe container, the pitted dates should be microwaved for 40 seconds with 1/4 cup water to soften and help make mashing easier.
2. In vitamix (or blender) add the mashed dates, maple syrup, vanilla, and raw sugar.
Add in the almond milk slowly as you blend.
