Vegan Caramel

Raw Vegan Caramel Apple Bites
on Daytime

1 cup medjool dates
1/3 to ½ cup vanilla almond milk (unsweetened) or homemade coconut milk (see below)
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
1 TB. either lucuma, mesquite or maca (Superfood powders) or combination*
A pinch of sea salt
2-3 Apples – Fuji or Granny Smith work well with this sauce
Optional: crushed pecan pieces or sliced almonds

*If you can’t find these Superfoods, try adding some butterscotch flavoring. These won’t be dairy-free but will still be superior to processed caramel.

Homemade Coconut Milk:
Soak 1 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut in 1 cup of filtered water. Blend well and strain with mesh strainer. You can use immediately or refrigerate – the “cream” will separate and is great to use with coffee or with berries or dessert topping.

Directions: Pit dates and cut into smaller pieces. Place in blender with 1/3 cup of almond milk and other ingredients. Blend until smooth, using spatula to scrape down sides until you have caramel consistency. Add more almond milk as needed. Pour into shallow bowl. (See instructions for making almond

Peel only the apples that you will be using. Using a melon baller, make as many balls as you can get out of each apple, avoiding the core. Insert a skewer or stick in center of apple and either twirl in caramel or layer on with butter knife to smooth. Dip in pecan pieces or slivered almonds. You can also slice apple and dip one half in caramel and in pecan pieces.
