Salted Vegan Cardamom Caramel Sauce

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We all love caramel sauce, er…well, at least I do, but I NEVER eat it because it’s loaded with refined sugar and dairy and it makes me loopy. Really!

SO, I just had to share my favorite vegan caramel sauce with you — two ways! One is plain and one has a dash of cacao for a little extra richness…as if it needs it. It’s super simple to make and all you need is a high-powered blender.

Drizzle this caramel sauce over fruit or coconut ice cream. Dreamy and Delish![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”5273″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_text_separator title=”INGREDIENTS”][vc_column_text]

  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted and soaked for 20 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (more if needed for thinner texture)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon cacao powder
