Mmm this caramel is soo good! My mom (you can find her on Instagram @annieup424) concocted this caramel sauce with leftover dates we had and it was amazing! Perfect to make for the holiday season and top it on anything! 🙂


  • 10 dates
  • 1/2 cup whole coconut milk (the thick one in a can)
  • 4 Tablespoons Maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons reserved water from the dates


Step 1

Fill a sauce pan with water just enough to cover the dates. Gently boil dates for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Drain, reserving 4 Tbls. of the water. Let sit until cool to the touch. Peel and pit the dates. Chop dates and toss in a blender with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until super smooth.

Step 3

Heat on med. high heat in a saucepan and bring to a boil, then simmer until thick.

Cooking vegan meals brings such excitement and richness to my life! The simple things in life are so beautiful to me. I love meeting new people. Welcome to my plant-based journey!
