I’ve seen/heard about people making caramel sauce out of dates, and have been wanting to try it out. I finally did last week, and YUM!! No refined sugar, just a few ingredients, and super easy. Pretty much a win in my book! Oh, and it’s yummy!Ingredients
- 8-10 Medjul Dates (pitted)
- 1/4-1/3 cup Almond Mild (or milk of your choice) Amount depends on the consistency you want and how many dates you used.
- 1/2 a vanilla bean (inside scraped out). Could also use pure vanilla extract
- A few grinds of sea salt
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or Cuisinart and blend until creamy. You’ll need to scrape the sides a few times. I started out in a Vitamix, but I don’t think I was making enough so it didn’t blend well. I dumped everything in my Cuisinart and it turned out great!
Maya loved helping me pit all the dates, and of course hitting the pulse button 😉You can dip apples in this, spread on toast, or put over ice cream (or banana ice cream!), or put dollops into a cake (THAT is coming on Wednesday-so good!!!)
