A healthy and delicious way to enjoy some caramel sauce!


  • 1 cup nut milk (or coconut milk - full fat)
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup amber/B grade
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp coconut oil optional


  1. Put the milk into a medium-size pot over medium heat, bring to a boil (keep an eye on it, it's fast).

  2. Add the maple syrup, bring to a quick boil again and reduce to low temperature.

  3. Simmer, uncovered for 25-30 minutes. Mix every 4-5 minutes or so, just so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. 

  4. Add the sea salt, vanilla, and coconut oil, mix and remove from heat.

  5. You can use warm or cold. It will not be as thick as a traditional caramel sauce, but it is really good and still thick enough to coat your spoon :)
