This 2-ingredient caramel sauce is made only with dates and almond milk! It's incredible as a dip with fresh fruit or as a topping for vegan cakes and ice creams.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup pitted dates (preferably Medjool, but Deglet are fine)
  • ⅔ cup (or as needed) vanilla unsweetened nondairy milk
  • Pinch of salt or grinding of coarse salt, optional
Instructions
  1. Soak the dates in hot water to cover for 30 to 60 minutes, then drain well.
  2. Combine in a blender with the nondairy milk and blend until very smooth.
  3. If it seems like the sauce will be difficult to pour out of the blender, add just a touch more nondairy milk and blend again. On the other hand, if the sauce seems thin (it should have body, though it won’t be as dense or sticky as sugar-based caramel sauce), add a couple more soaked dates.
  4. Pour into a serving container and serve over nondairy ice cream, vegan brownies, or as a dip with fruit.
