Vegan Date Caramel

If you’re wondering how to make vegan caramel, look no further! This 5-ingredients date caramel is a delightful surprise. Really easy to make and takes less than 20 minutes.

Vegan Date Caramel

It’s unlike any other caramels I’ve tried (because of the dates), but that’s what makes this recipe sweeter, creamier, and thicker!

Vegan Date Caramel

The secret to a great caramel lies in the type of dates you’re using. Soft and sticky dates make it really creamy. If your dates are not as soft, simply soak them in hot water for 10-15 minutes. That will fix the problem.

Recipe Notes

  1. Soaking hard and firm dates in hot water makes them soft and hence easier to blend. This also makes the caramel really creamy.
  2. To adjust the thickness of your caramel, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  3. You can store the caramel (in an air-tight container) in the fridge for 5-6 days.
