Date Caramel Sauce

Date Caramel Sauce
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 packed cups (300g) Pitted Dates, soft

  • 2 cups Boiling Water

  • ⅔ cup Light Coconut Milk, canned

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • ¼ tsp Salt

DIRECTIONS:
  1. In a heatproof bowl, add the dates and pour the boiling water on top.  Let soak for 45 minutes.

  2. Reserve 1 cup of the soaking liquid and drain the rest.

  3. In a high-speed blender (I used my NutriBullet but I’m sure a Vitamix would work too), add the soaked dates and ½ cup of the reserved liquid.  Puree until smooth, adding more water as needed.  In total, I needed ~¾ cup.

  4. Add the coconut milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup and salt, and puree until very smooth.

  5. Pour into a jar, seal tightly, and refrigerate to store.  Keeps for ~2 weeks
