An easy and quick homemade vegan caramel sauce that uses a combination of dates to naturally sweeten and brown sugar to make for a perfectly easy topping for ice cream, oatmeal, and more!



  • 810 dates (pitted)
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and heat over medium high heat, until sauce comes to a simmer. Stir occasionally and keep over heat for 10 minutes, reducing to medium heat after the first few minutes to prevent bubbling over, until sauce is thickened and a deeper brown color. Do NOT try to taste it, it’s really freaking hot right now, so don’t even think about it. Stir in vanilla extract when sauce has cooled slightly. Store in refrigerator.
