– 5 Medjool dates (pits removed, soaked in 3/4 cup water) – 1 Tablespoon cashews or sunflower seeds (can soak with the dates) – 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa/cacao powder – 1/2 cup cooked black beans – 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon vanilla – Extra water on hand to add to during blending


1. In a high-powered blender, combine all of the ingredients, including the soaking water for the dates, and blend until silky smooth.

2. Add extra water, a tablespoon or so at a time, (up to ~5 tablespoons total), to achieve the right consistency, (a semi-thick sauce rather than a stiff dip).

3. Store in a squeeze bottle, in the back of the fridge.
