This recipe for Date & Cashew Butter is totally free of refined sugar, but certainly doesn’t taste it! The dates have a lovely natural sweetness, and the cashews add a creamy, velvety texture – I know…good, right? So good.
I won’t rave on about it too much, let’s just say it doesn’t taste like it’s good for you!
