This Date Caramel Sauce is made with dates, rice syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and sea salt. It's the perfect balance of salty and sweet. It's a silky, sweet, and easy vegan caramel sauce recipe!
DATES: Remember to remove the seed from your dates before adding them to your blender. You don't want to blend your dates with the seed still in them. That would be very unpleasant. Also make sure your dates are fresh and soft. If not, soak your dates in some warm water for 15 minutes then drain. This adds back in moisture.
SWEETNER: Both rice syrup and coconut nectar work with this recipe because it's very sticky and makes it silkier. But if you desire you can omit this or use maple syrup or agave.
NON DAIRY MILK: You can swap almond milk for coconut milk or even use vanilla flavored almond milk for additional flavor.
ADDITIONS & SUBSTITUTIONS: Peanut butter would also give this caramel sauce a salted flavor plus a protein boost!
