This date caramel is sweet, delicious, and made using real food, simple ingredients. The medjool dates provide the rich sweet caramel flavour as well as fibre and a host of other vitamins and minerals. They’re a great source of Potassium, Copper, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Calcium, Iron, and Vitamin K.
As an added bonus, there’s no cream or butter involved – making this caramel dairy-free. It’s the perfect topping for ice cream, brownies, oatmeal, spoons…almost anything! Did we also mention it’s infused with collagen? That’s right, it’s a dessert that directly benefits your hair, skin, and nails…what more could you want?!
This recipe uses our Raw Protein Collagen Plus Vanilla Maple to enrich the flavour of the caramel sauce and add even more health benefits. In each serve, there’s 5000mg of Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Peptides and 24g of organic plant protein. The ultimate beauty protein, it also has Vitamin C for collagen production, Iron for energy, Zinc for skin and immunity, and plant-based digestive enzymes for gut health.
Making the sauce is easy! Simply add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy, adding more coconut milk if needed. Keep it in a glass jar in the fridge (it will last for about a week) and drizzle it over anything you like.

Date Caramel Sauce
Dessert & Snacks
12 large medjool dates, pitted (if dates are firm, soak in warm water to soften)
2 tbsp Raw Protein Collagen Plus Vanilla Maple
2 tbsp hulled tahini
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, blend until smooth and creamy (this takes a few minutes). Add more coconut milk if required or until desired consistency is reached.
Transfer to a glass jar and store in the fridge. Note: it will go firm on the fridge, so you may need to add hot water when you serve.
Serve with apple, on oats or as a sauce on your choice of non-dairy ice cream/dessert.
