Wholesome Caramel Dip
12 pitted medjool dates-soaked
1/2 cup brazil nuts
1 tsp organic 100% Maple Syrup
1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 raw vanilla bean
1/2-1 cup water
In a bowl soak the dates and brazil nuts together in 1/2 cup-1 cup water, let soak for approx. 1 hour. After soaking, drain the dates and brazil nuts but save the water and set aside. In a high powered blender, I used the Vitamix, Combine the soaked dates, brazil nuts, maple syrup and vanilla. blend on low- medium speed scraping the sides as needed and add 1/4-1/2 cup of the soaking water back into the mixture until desired caramel dip consistency is achieved. Once the dip is smooth and mixed well remove from blender and serve with sliced apples. So easy and so nutritious plus delicious!!!
