Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients

  • 1 can white beans OR 1-2/3 cup cooked white beans: navy, kidney or Northern
  • 1-2/3 cup filtered water
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup You could also use two soaked, softened dates, if preferred. (For GAPS, use honey; for Low Carb, sub in Lakanto's Maple Syrup or stevia, to taste.)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon Use more if preferred. I like it subtle.
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 to 2 pinches sea salt

Instructions

  • Place water, beans, maple syrup and cinnamon in high-powered blender. Blend for 30 seconds at medium speed. Increase speed to medium-high for 20 additional seconds.
  • Pour into quart-size mason jar, and serve, or refrigerate until ready to use.
