So, what is dates paste?

Dates paste is a sweet and versatile ingredient made by blending pitted dates until smooth. This thick, caramel-colored paste has a rich, complex flavor profile that ranges from sweet and fruity to slightly nutty with hints of caramel. Dates paste can be used as a natural sweetener in baking, smoothies, and desserts, or as a spread for toast and sandwiches. It's also a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine, where it's used to make traditional sweets like ma'amoul and halwa. Dates paste is a healthy alternative to refined sugar, as it's packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
