Medjul Date Caramel Sauce

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!Blog Caramel Medjul Date Sauce-3Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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 😉Blog Caramel Medjul Date Sauce-Blog Caramel Medjul Date Sauce-2Blog Caramel Medjul Date Sauce-4You 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!!!)
