Vegan Caramel Sauce

15 min



10 ingredients or less

This caramel sauce is sweet, but not overwhelmingly sweet like some traditional caramel sauces are, making it perfect to add to inherently sweet desserts. You can serve this delicious caramel sauce on coffee with whipped cream, ice cream, apples, popcorn, pancakes, waffles, cake, yogurt, brownies, or simply on a spoon.

  1. To a saucepan, add all the ingredients except for the vanilla. Stir continuously while you bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cooking uncovered for 8 - 10 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Allow the caramel sauce to sit and cool; it will continue to thicken as it cools, and thickens even more once refrigerated.


  • * Coconut cream is obtained by scooping the thick part out from the top of a can of coconut milk. To more easily obtain the cream from your can of coconut milk, it can help to refrigerate the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight.
