Date and Spirulina Caramel

We are always down for a healthy swap. This recipe makes a caramel-like dip out of dates packed with our nutrient-dense spirulina. Hints of cinnamon and ginger add the perfect spice blend. All you need is sliced fruit (we go for apples) for a healthy snack that will savor any sweet tooth.

Makes about 1 cup


24 dates, pitted

Water (for soaking)

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 tablespoon We Are The New Farmers’ Spirulina


1. Soak dates in a bowl of cold water for fifteen minutes to tenderize the fruit

2. Drain the dates, reserving some of the soaking liquid, and place them in a blender or food processor with the cinnamon, ginger, and spirulina

3. Blend until smooth, adding the date water as necessary to ensure a smooth consistency

4. Serve with fruit, pretzels, or other healthy snacks. Enjoy!
