YUM+SPREAD RECIPE


Prep Time 10 minutes Total Time 10 minutes

Servings 6 (8 oz wide-mouth jar) Calories 75


Wholesome Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp of Manna (Coconut Butter)

  • 6 Dates (Soaked in warm water-PITTED)

  • 1/2 Tsp of Himalayan Salt

  • 1/4 - 12 Cup Water

  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla

OPTIONAL: Add Semi-Sweet Chocolate Powder (wink-wink)


Items required

  • Food Processor or High-Speed Blender

  • Silicone Spatula for mixing


Gather all your ingredients:

1. Soak in warm water and pit the Dates. (remove the seed)

2. In the high-speed blender, throw in the dates, coconut manna, tahini, vanilla, salt, water.

3. Blend at high speed, this will take patience. Start with 3 TBSP at-a-time until you reach your desired consistency.

4. Now the Yum+Spread is ready to use and eat!


PERSONAL TIP: For a smoother consistency, add water gradually. Personally, I took 1/2 cup of water and went by 3 TBSP at a time to find my perfect butter spread.


Preserve in a glass container/jar and refrigerate!

The spread will solidify when it gets cold but it is still spreadable.


NOTES:

  • Coconut Manna is basically pureed coconut butter, made from dried coconut flesh which makes it very creamy and perfect for spreads, sauces and even smoothies.


  • Tahini has been a trending topic for a long time. It's a creamy paste made of sesame seeds. It's used in hummus and/or middle eastern cuisines.
