Date Syrup / Date Paste

Today is Day 2 of my Daniel Fast.  

I needed to make some date syrup since I will be using a lot of it during the Daniel Fast.  decided to combine several recipes and come up with my own variation. it is !!!!

1 - 14 oz package of dates (there were 26 dates in my package)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 to 1 tsp lemon juice
3 cups water (if you want it thinner, add another 1/2 to 1 cup of water)


Place all ingredients in a blender and let sit for about 15 minutes.  Then blend on high for a few minutes until completely smooth. 

Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 3-4 weeks. 

Part of the Daniel Fast is praising God.....SO......

Praise God for he is:
beautiful, bountiful, beginning

Anyone who speaks should speak words from God.  Anyone who serves should serve with the strength God gives so that in everything God will be praised through Jesus Christ.  Power and glory belong to him forever and ever.  Amen.
1 Peter 4:11 (NCV)
