Healthy Two-Ingredient Caramel Sauce
Yields: 1 cup + 7 tablespoons
This healthier caramel sauce is incredibly easy to make! It will last for at least one week, if not closer to two, if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • 1 cup (190g) fresh pitted medjool dates (about 10)
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp (210mL) water
  1. Add the dates and ¼ cup of water to a high-powered blender or food processor. Blend until fully combined. Gradually add more water, 2 tablespoons at a time, until the sauce is smooth and reaches the consistency of honey. Transfer to an airtight container, and chill until ready to use.
Notes: It's more common to find medjool dates with the pits still inside at the grocery store, but it's really easy to remove the pits yourself! Do not use dried medjool dates; the caramel sauce will not have the same smooth consistency.

You may need to adjust the amount of water depending on your blender or the texture of your dates. The consistency of the caramel sauce should be similar to that of honey.

The sharper the blades are on your food processor or blender, the smoother the caramel sauce will be. I own and highly recommend this Ninja. It’s one of the more affordable high-powered models on the market.
