With these three ingredients, plus a little oil and the power of our Chefbot’s engine, we will obtain a sweet paste with a deep chocolate flavour and no refined sugar added. It also lasts a long time in the fridge and has very varied applications: from giving it the shape of a little ball, which we can cover with a little more cocoa powder or melted chocolate to get a tasty snack, to using it as a base to prepare healthy biscuits by mixing it with crushed ripe banana and oat flakes. We can also spread it on toast or mix a spoonful with a natural yogurt for a tasty and energetic breakfast or snack. Bear in mind that the cold in the fridge makes the dough harder and more difficult to handle, so if we take out the desired portion with a spoon and leave it at room temperature it will become manageable in a very short time.
- 200 g boneless dates
- 100 g of roasted, peeled and unsalted pistachios
- 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, mild olive oil or other neutral-flavoured oil
- 2 tablespoons of pure unsweetened cocoa (about 30 g)
- Soak the dates in 1 litre of cold water and leave them in the fridge for two hours.
- Drain the dates well with the help of the deep steam basket. Place the blade accessory in the Chefbot’s glass. Add the soaked and drained dates, the 100 g of pistachios, the 2 tablespoons of oil (30 ml) and the 2 tablespoons of pure cocoa (40 g). Program 1 minute at speed 10 and close.
- Open the glass of the Chefbot and, with the help of the spatula, push down what is left on the walls of the glass. Set 2 minutes at speed 10 and close.
- Open the glass of the Chefbot and use the spatula to transfer the pasta to a jar or a lid and store it in the refrigerator. Before eating, leave it at room temperature to make it more manageable (cold is necessary to prolong its conservation, but it makes it hard).
