Vegan Salted Caramel
From the book, Whole Girl by Sadie Radinsky
Yield: Serves 10
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ¾ cup full-fat coconut milk 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 2 – 5 apples, sliced, for dipping
- Whisk together the coconut sugar and coconut milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
- Once the mixture has started boiling, turn down the heat to medium-low and let the caramel simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, whisking every couple minutes. If it starts to smell very strong, remove from heat; it could be burning. When the caramel appears to have thickened considerably and darkened in color, remove from heat.
- Slowly whisk in the vanilla extract, coconut oil, and sea salt. Let the caramel cool for at least 10 minutes, to thicken up more. Pour the caramel into a small jar. I recommend serving it with sliced apples for a healthy snack. Store any leftover caramel in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
