This vegan Salted Caramel is made from dates and peanut butter, making it a super healthy and clean eating treat that’s perfect to sweeten any dessert or breakfast.
Salted Caramel is great. But what if you are vegan and also try to eat healthy? Does that mean that you shouldn’t have salted caramel? Oh my, that sounds cruel. Of course not. Healthy eating vegans have the same rights to salted caramel as other people.
The good news is, that with a little creativity, you can have your cake and eat it too.
This clean eating vegan “caramel” is actually quite easy to make. All you’ll need is pitted Medjool dates, peanut butter, non-dairy milk and salt. Oh and a blender of course. Vegans’ best friend.
Vegan Salted Caramel from Dates and Peanut Butter
Start by soaking your pitted dates in very hot water for 20 minutes. This should help soften them up, so your blender will have an easier time blending. When the 20 minutes is up, drain and “massage” the excess water out of the dates (they soak up quite a bit).
Now, add all of the ingredients in the blender and blend and blend. Around 5 minutes will do the job.
And that’s it, you’re done. Your very own, clean eating salted caramel is ready to devour. Amazing, isn’t it? 😉
