Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe With Coconut Sugar and Coconut Milk

It Does Exist! Vegan and Refined Sugar-Free Salted Caramel Recipe

When you think of caramel, you’re mind likely jumps to that sweet, gooey, refined sugar treat. Not exactly part of a healthy diet. Well, things just changed. This salted caramel recipe is vegan and free from refined white sugar as well. But don’t think that because it’s healthier it stints on taste. With the help of coconut milk, coconut sugar, and a touch of vanilla and salt, it retains all the iconic flavors of salted caramel, only without the setbacks.

Salted caramel is a delicious combination of what seems to be the world’s most offensive dietary vices: butter, sugar, heavy cream, and salt. What could possibly replace such ingredients, especially when each one plays such an important role in making salted caramel the scrumptious stunner it is? While this recipe is healthier than dairy-based caramel, it’s still a treat meant to be consumed infrequently. But it is a treat you can feel a lot better about.

This caramel recipe pairs well with chopped fruit, cupcakes, muffins, ice cream, cookies, and especially when your sweet tooth kicks in, you can enjoy it simply with a spoon. Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Recipe

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup cold water

In a pan over medium heat, add the coconut sugar and water. Stir until it begins to boil. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes while stirring. Add in coconut milk and stir until well combined.
