Date syrup: natural sweetener without sugar

Date syrup
Date syrup

This date syrup only needs 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to get ready and is a healthy and nutritious alternative to sugar, with a super creamy texture and a wonderful caramel flavor.

It is very similar to the date caramel that we use to make vegan ice cream with date caramel , but since this time the objective is to get a syrup that we can use at room temperature, and therefore, without risk of crystallizing, its texture is lighter and its more versatile result.

One of the advantages of this healthy sweetener is that with it we benefit from the fantastic nutrients of dates, thus enriching our preparations, both in taste and nutritional properties.

And, nutritionally, dates are an extraordinary source of tryptophan , fiber , carbohydrates , B vitamins (especially B3 and B5 ), calcium , copper , phosphorus , magnesium and potassium .

For all this, it is an ideal alternative to use in a wide variety of desserts and sweets such as biscuits, smoothies, bars, cakes or cold cakes and even to make vegetable milks and horchata.

Below you can see what ingredients you need and the steps to follow in order to make this delicious and healthy sugar substitute.
