Chef Katie’s Tips:
More Sweetness: If you want added sweetness, you can add date water (left from soaking dates in warm water), maple syrup, Stevia, or your preferred sweetener.
Play with Spices: Bump up the flavor by adding a dash of spice. Cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg would all add interesting flavor. Vanilla or lemon extract would add brightness.
