Servings 1 cup


  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 2 dates pitted, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove peeled


  • Set a non-stick pan over medium heat. Once warm, add the roughly chopped walnut pieces. Dry cook and toss the walnuts until golden, about 5 minutes. Toasting the walnuts will soften its bitterness and enhance its flavor. If you want to keep this recipe raw, skip the toasting.
  • In a high-speed blender, add all of the ingredients including the walnuts. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Refrigerate and chill in a container for at least one hour.
