  • 2 cups fresh blueberries (1 pint)
  • 3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black strap molasses
  • Large pinch cayenne pepper (+/- to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoons sea salt (+/- to taste)
  • ¼ cup water


  1. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil, then immediately lower the heat to a simmer.
  2. Using a potato masher (or fork), mash the blueberries and the Medjool dates to break them up, and continue to simmer for 15 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Don’t worry if you can’t completely mash them all up as you will be placing the mixture in a high-speed blender or using an immersion blender to homogenize the mixture later.
  3. After simmering for 15 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes, then place the mixture into a high-speed blender or use an immersion blender for one minute until completely smooth.
  4. Refrigerate until ready to use.


*Sea Salt: Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.
