Super creamy 2 ingredients date caramel

Posted by Marie-Eve Maitland on 27th Feb 2017

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


  • 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
