I can not believe I haven’t shared this recipe with all of you. I sincerely apologize. We’ve been making this for a while and it’s a family favorite.
Sometimes I forget it’s the little things that brighten someone’s day. And, this Easy Vegan Date Caramel is like a freaking jolt of sunshine.
Dates Are Healthy
Dates are the base for this heavenly decadence. They are high in calories because they are a dried fruit, but dates are also super healthy.
Several vitamins and minerals are found in dates, in addition to fiber. Dates also contain several different types of antioxidants which means they help prevent the development of certain chronic illnesses, like heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
Besides dates, there are only two other ingredients you need for this recipe: almond milk and vanilla. I do add about ¼ teaspoon of salt to mine, but that is totally optional.
Now, just toss everything in your Vitamix and blend until everything is silky smooth. If you don’t have a Vitamix or high-powered blender, soak your dates in warm water for about 15 minutes. It makes the blending much easier.

- 15–18 pitted medjool dates

- Store leftovers, not that there will be any, in a glass jar or airtight container. Will keep in the fridge for a week.
You want to use soft dates. If your dates are hard and dry, soak them in warm water for 20-30 minutes.
