Makes 200mL

Tools (Without a blender)

  • Fork
  • Saucer
  • Small Saucepan
  • Whisk

Tools (With a blender or Vitamix)

  • Vitamix or blender
  • Small Saucepan
  • Whisk


  • 250mL coconut milk or cream
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted*

*If you aren’t using a blender, its best to remove the date skins first – Just simmer the dates in boiling water for a few minutes to allow the dates to soften and the skins to loosen.

Method – Without a blender

  1. Place the dates on a saucer and mash with a fork.
  2. Scrape the mashed dates into a small saucepan, add the coconut milk and bring to the boil over medium heat.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, whisking frequently, until the dates dissolve and the colour turns a light ‘caramel’ brown.
  4. The volume should also reduce slightly and once this occurs, remove from the heat and serve.

Method – With a blender

  1. Whiz the dates and coconut milk in a blender.
  2. Transfer to a small saucepan over low heat and simmer until the colour turns a light ‘caramel’ brown.
  3. The volume should also reduce slightly and once this occurs, remove from the heat and serve.

Store your caramel sauce in the fridge. Once refrigerated, you’ll notice that it does solidify slightly, however, a little heat will ensure it becomes liquid again.
