Caramel has always been a favorite of ours, but the traditional version isn’t vegan-friendly because it usually contains milk or butter. Thankfully, this healthy vegan alternative satisfies your sweet tooth and tastes just like the “real” thing.

All you will need for this recipe are some dates, almond milk, and a pinch of salt. We added a splash of vanilla extract as well but that is totally optional! Pop these into a blender and you are well on your way to enjoying your very own homemade caramel. Can you believe it’s that easy?

This date caramel is a perfect meal-prep companion because it can be made in large batches and portioned out throughout the week. Enjoy it as an afternoon pick-me-up or even as an after dinner treat.
