If you caught our most recent Pod Squad podcast (September 11, 2023), you likely caught my attempt to “cool” the temperature of the dialogue with a snack for the verbal combatants. (the attempt failed!)
A few of you have asked for, and during the podcast I offered to provide, the recipe and ingredients so you can enjoy them yourself.
It’s a nice light, sweet and refreshing treat, good for any occasion (even a fiery political podcast) or if you just want something to snack on when home relaxing. And it’s very easy to make.
Take a crack at it and tell me what you think!
Hypen’s Grapes of Wrath
8oz pitted dates
2 tablespoons of nut butter (I used 1/3 cashew and 2/3 almond butter)
2 teaspoons of nutmeg and cinnamon (feel free to use more or less)
Pumpkin Pie spice
A few drops of Vanilla extract
*Boil water and then add dates anywhere from 10-30 minutes (more time softens them)
*Drain the water (you can save it and add lemon to make some naturally sweetened lemonade)
*Combine ingredients in blender or food processor (add water if necessary to achieve desired consistency)
*Dip the green grapes in the mixture and enjoy!
