Salted Caramel Date Sauce


This next recipe is extremely simple and will knock your socks off! Caramel sauce made from only dates and water, how can that possibly taste good may you ask. My non-date loving friends can attest to this sauce's deliciousness. We created this recipe when making our Healthy Chocolate Torte as well as our Healthy Apple Crisp. it adds just the perfect amount of sweetness and caramel goodness. Give it a try! We're sure you wont be disappointed!! 



Start by soaking one cup of pitted dates in a few cups of water for 1-2 hours or overnight. 



Remove the dates from the water (preserving the water) and transfer to a blender. Add in one cup of the preserved date liquid as well as a quarter to half a teaspoon of sea salt.



Blend until smooth and voilĂ ! You have yourself a quick, easy, and healthy caramel sauce. We prefer to serve it warm but it still tastes delicious when cold. If you want a thinner sauce, you can always blend with little extra water.
