Artificial sweeteners contain no calories and are proven to be unhealthy and they can also provoke a hunger attack. Conventional sugars are, however, more dangerous and they are bad for every organ in your body. Therefore, the solution lies in consuming foods that are naturally sweet, and doing so you will also bring numerous benefits toyour body. One of these foods are dates.
Full of healthy carbohydrates, vitamin B6, and minerals such as magnesium, potassium and manganese, dates are an ideal substitute for regular sugar or artificial sweeteners. That is why more and more people who eat healthy, organic or fresh food turn precisely to this foodstuff when they want to eat something sweet.
However, dates are not for everyone’s taste. There are those who love them, but there is a large number of people who simply do not like their taste. So it’s good to know that their taste can be cleverly hidden. In other words you can hide their taste and you will be left only with their sweetness.
Dates are extremely suitable for making juices and fruit shakes, so if you want to sweeten your shakes, the only thing you need to do is add one date (pitted, of course) in the blender. You can also make a date syrup. All you need to do is put some dates in a bowl and pour some water over them and leave them overnight. In the morning put them in a blender, add some water and mix them well. This can serve as a sweetener in foods and also as a tasty sauce for pancakes.
For those who do not drink milk, they can always make almond milk. In order to sweeten this almond milk, you can add some dates. They will give a special taste, a little like caramel, to the milk. There is no exact recipe here, and all the cooks advise you to work according to your own taste. Which means add one or two dates, and try. If you want your almond milk to be sweeter, add one more date.And if your milk is too luscious, add a little bit of water.
