Healthy Date Caramel Sauce


Healthy Date Caramel Sauce

Want something amazing and healthy to top off your desserts without any artificial colours, refined sugar, preservatives, NO butter or heavy cream!
I have the solution for you, and it’s so quick and easy it’s almost too simple to share.
But I will anyway:
How about a delicious caramel sauce with just four ingredients, that you can have ready in less than 5 minutes?
That’s it!
This easy Caramel Sauce is delicious in so many ways and will bring your desserts and snacks from common to extraordinary! Coconut and dates are also loaded with health properties. High in fiber and antioxidants, they are food products you will want to make a part of your daily diet.
How can I use this caramel sauce?
So easy to whip up at a moment’s notice, and it can take an already amazing dessert to a whole new level of wow. In the photo I drizzled it over some vanilla, coconut ice cream, but you could also use it:
As a healthy topping for cake, brownies or cheesecake
Enjoy it as a sauce for pancakes or waffles
Put a dollop on top of shakes, smoothies and smoothie bowls
Top a bowl of ice cream with it
Stir some into a cup of yogurt
Make a parfait by layering yogurt, caramel sauce, and granola
I’ve even used it on top of my breakfast muesli (hey,it’s healthy, don’t judge).
Come to think of it, you could put this caramel sauce on pretty much anything from breakfasts to desserts to snacks. So colourful, so delicious and so good for you! And of course, any children in your life will love it too.
Now your only decision is, what to put it on? The possibilities are endless…
Like me, you may want to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon!

  • 2 cups dates, soaked at least 30 minutes and drained
  • 1 cup coconut milk or cream, full fat
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender.
    Blend on high until very smooth and creamy. You can adjust the consistency by adding more coconut milk if it is too thick to pour easily.
    It makes a lot, so keep the extra in an air-tight container in the fridge.
