Chocolate Sauce

This recipe was found in an article.┬áThe recipe author is Timaree Hagenburger who wrote a wonderful recipe book “The Foodie Bar Way


  • 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 (e.g. Vitamix or Blendtec), 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.
