Super creamy 2 ingredients date caramel

The title says it all. Super easy and truly delicious date caramel. I will be using it on my pancakes tomorrow.

Dates are incredibly beneficial for your overall health

  • They can help to relieve digestive issues
  • Can provide your body with energy
  • Good source of many vitamins and minerals
  • Contains Selenium which has a positive effect of the immune system
  • Can help to avoid overeating (especially if they are taken before meal)
  • They can also help to relieve from a bad hangover (good tip there)

125g dried dates, chopped
1 cup of boiling water
1 teaspoon of vanilla paste

What you will need
A food processor*
1 fine sieve (optional)
A container with a tight fitting lid (mason/kilner jar is my pick)

1. Put the chopped dates and boiling water in a container with a tight fitting lid, close and let to rest for 30 minutes
2. Put the dates and water in a food processor alongside the vanilla. Whizz until smooth and add more water until it's at the consistency you want
3. This is optional - strain the caramel
4. Serve with pancakes or with sliced apples as a treat. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

* A blender is fine too but will take longer and you will need to scrape the sides
