The caramel in this recipe is made from soaked dates and their soaking water. It’s livened up a bit with a good pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon. The salt offsets the sweetness of the dates, and the cinnamon brings it to a more standard caramel color and lessens some of the dates’ sugary effect on your blood. You can use any dried fruits, nuts and seeds that you like.



  • 2 medium cooked sweet potato
  • 1 cup California Whole Pitted Dates
  • 1 cup Hot Water
  • 3 tbsp Pumpkin Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Dried Cherries
  • 2 tbsp Dried Cranberries
  • 1 tbsp almonds
  • 1 tbsp Toasted Salted Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
