“Say my name, say my name”…sort of! Date Caramel is an INCREDIBLY easy way to make a healthier caramel sauce. It’s richer than the traditional. It has a lot of flavor, but also so many benefits! I found myself slathering it on banana bread, porridge, making a take on maple syrup for pancakes, it’s even good on it’s on (a tiny teaspoon!) it’s own!
All you need is: 20 dates (Medjool are the queens of dates)
teaspoon of vanilla
little pinch of sea salt
a good food processor
A bowl of warm water, and a cup of warm water
Here’s what to do:
Soak 20 dates in a bowl of warm water for about 15 minutes. Strain after they’re soft. In your food processor, add a little bit of the cup of water. Blitz until smooth, you may need to add a little more of the cup of water, depending on what consistency you’re going for. Like I added about three tablespoons to make it more of a syrup for pancakes.
Let me know what you end up doing with the Date Caramel, love hearing from you guys!
