Decadent Dairy Free Caramel

 

Oh ya!  How the heck to you make Decadent Dairy Free Caramel?  Dates baby!  So, it’s actually a date paste that you can use to sweeten up smoothies, add to baking, or spread on some apple slices.  If you want to zip it up, add some sea salt and you’ve got yourself some salted caramel or add a little vanilla to add more depth of flavour.  If you want caramel , add more water to drizzle on top of dairy free coconut milk ice cream.

And, its so easy to make.

Take as many unsulfered dates as needed.  In these pictures, it contains about 2 cups of dates and makes about 1 cup of paste.  Soak the dates in hot water for a least 20 minutes.

Add the dates, without the water, into a food processor. Take about 1/3 cup of the date water and process until smooth.  Depending on the freshness of the dates, you may need more water.
