Dairy Free Cane Sugar Free Salted Caramel Sauce February 09 2015, 0 Comments
Not too sweet and slightly salty, this rich salted caramel sauce goes well with just about everything.
You only need five natural ingredients to make delicious dairy-free and cane sugar-free caramel. This recipe makes a little over a 1/2 cup of caramel, but will not be quite as thick as traditional dairy and cane sugar caramel.
1/2 cup organic coconut palm sugar (we use Biona)
4 tablespoons water
1 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 healthy pinches of sea salt
1. Add your coconut sugar and water to a small sauce pan and bring to a slow boil, whisking occasionally to melt your sugar.
2. Once your mixture has reached a boil, whisk in your coconut milk, vanilla extract and salt.
3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes. Watch your mixture carefully to ensure it does not burn or boil over.
4. Once your caramel is a rich golden brown colour and has thickened slightly, remove from heat and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving. Your caramel will keep in the fridge for a week (if you can stop yourself from eating it all in one go!) in an airtight container and can be served cool or warm.
We like to put this caramel on almost anything. Try it drizzled over banana bread, farm fresh green apples, sticky toffee pudding or ice cream.
Organic coconut sugar is unrefined and made from the liquid nectar of the coconut blossom. Coconut palm sugar is a low GI sweetener with a glycemic value of 35, compared to regular cane sugar, which is typically GI 68.
