This is such a simple dessert that can have so many uses. Just recently, I made Vegan Caramel Apples using it, and they were absolutely amazing! For the apples, I made it a little thicker so it would stick to the apples well but, it’s so versatile, you can make it thick, thin, or somewhere in between.

You’ll love this sticky sweet caramel sauce because it’s:

  • Easy and delicious
  • Free of syrup and refined sugars
  • Oil-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan

All of the ingredients used are wholesome and much lower in fat than the traditional version. Made with dates, vanilla, sea salt, and plant milk, this vegan caramel sauce is going to knock your socks off. The recipe is adapted from the Eating Bird Food website.

How do you make vegan caramel sauce?

Remove the pits from each of the dates. Then, add all of the ingredients–dates, vanilla, sea salt, and plant milk–to your high-power blender. My personal favorite and the only brand I use is Vitamix because it can blend anything I throw in it to perfection.

Blend the ingredients until nice and smooth. Add more plant milk 1-2 tablespoons at a time if needed to help the blending process.

One of the best things about this recipe is that by making adjustments to the amount of plant milk used, you can easily change the consistency for different uses. To make an extra-special treat for the kids, add less milk to keep it thick and make these fabulous Vegan Caramel Apples.

Want to be able to drizzle it over Vanilla Cake or Nice Cream? EASY! Add a little more milk to make the consistency more liquidy to flow right over all those desserts.
