I love this syrup on pancakes and waffles because it’s sweet, but not “tooth-tingling” sweet like maple syrup. It also works well with a variety of fresh fruits (see Notes).
- 1½ cups water
- 4 ounces pitted dates (about 8 Medjool or 16 Deglet Noor), chopped
- ½ cup sliced strawberries
- Place the water, dates, and strawberries into a blender, and set aside for at least 15 minutes (so the dates can soften).
- Blend the date mixture until a smooth, pourable consistency is reached (add more water as needed to thin, but the syrup will thicken afterwards as it sits). Serve over pancakes and waffles.
Instead of strawberries, try raspberries, blueberries, kiwifruit, peaches, mango, and/or banana.
Use any leftover syrup on fruit or oatmeal.
