Date caramel sauce that is vegan and doesn’t contain dairy but still taste soft and sweet? You have found it. You need literally a handful of ingredients. It is sugar free but does contain natural sugars. Want to learn how you can make date caramel? Lets get started!
This may be the easiest caramel sauce you ever made. Especially if you want to store and use the caramel for a longer time.
Date caramel without water stores really well and can be used up to a couple of weeks. You need a high speed blender because without it, the caramel will stay a little chunky instead of creamy.
Best of all this caramel can be eaten by anyone if you are dairy intolerant you can finally eat caramel sauce.
Last year I showed you how you can make caramel dulce de leche from condensed milk. Down side of this caramel is that it is not vegan. So if you do not want to or can take dairy this caramel is not for you.
Second down side of dulce de leche is that is take quite long to make. A couple of hours compared to a couple of minutes in a high speed blender.

How to make date caramel
There are a lot of different type dates. There are at least 10 types of dates that are from red to black and from semi sweet to real sweet.
I never knew until I first ate Medjool which tasted so different than the dates I tasted before. This was like a treat a piece of candy. The Delget Noor is another type of date that is soft and sticky and really sweet.
This date caramel is made with Delget Noor dates. So to turn it into the caramel put all the ingredients in the blender.
First pulse the blender to combine all the ingredients. When it has turned into small bits you can turn your blender on a higher speed.
If the sauce is to thick you can add more coconut milk. If it is not sweet enough add one or two teaspoons of palm syrup to make the sauce sweeter.
Put the caramel sauce in a glass jar and store in the fridge. You can keep it in the fridge for at least two weeks and sometimes even longer.
When you store it in the fridge it will get firmer.
