I❤️ caramel. It's so yummy you can just eat it by the spoonful. It's also all-natural, raw, vegan, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. Just a whole bunch of YUM!
I wanted to make something quick and easy to be able to elevate any dessert and thought this was an ideal way to do so. It is so easy you can just throw everything into your high-powered blender, and within a minute or two, you're good to pour out all of that sweet, natural goodness onto your ice cream, morning breakfast toasts, or any other dessert for a little extra yum!
I'm also still learning how to do videos and thought this would be the ideal recipe to practice with since it only requires two steps and is Instagram friendly. I hope you enjoy it and would love to hear your comments on how to improve.
1 cup Medjool dates , soaked in hot water for 20 minutes and peeled
2 tablespoons tahini
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup water (or coconut milk for more of a spreadable caramel)
1. Add your ingredients into a high powered blender and pulse while gradually adding the water (or coconut milk) till you get the desired thickness.
2. Pour into either a squeezable bottle or simply into mason jar for the more spreadable version.
