  • 12 dates
  • 2 Tablespoons non-dairy milk or water
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Soak dates in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain water from dates (save if using in sauce in place of non-dairy milk).
  2. In a high-speed blender combine all ingredients. Add more non-dairy milk by the teaspoon as needed if sauce doesn’t blend well.
  3. Blend caramel sauce until you have a creamy and spreadable consistency.
