Natural Fruit Dip

This is a delicious fruit dip but would also be lovely spread over toasted gluten-free bread or crackers.  It is natural, healthy, and free of grains, refined sugars and dairy.  I hope you enjoy this healthy snack as much as I do!

Delicious on a honey crisp apple!
2c pitted whole dates, covered in water and soaked overnight (reserve water)
1/4c raw unsalted almond butter
1/2tsp sea salt
1tsp balsamic vinegar
1tsp alcohol free vanilla (otherwise the alcohol doesn't burn off because it's not cooked)
Sliced fruit such as apples, peaches, strawberries, ect.

1. Combine dates, almond butter, salt, vinegar and vanilla in a food processor.  Blend until smooth.  If needed add a tablespoon or two of the soaking water until it is as thick or thin as you like. 
2. Serve with sliced fruit.  Store in the fridge.
