Five-Minute Vegan Caramel Sauce

This delicious vegan caramel sauce only takes five ingredients, and only takes five minutes to make! No, really. Drizzle it on ice cream, fruit, or just lick it right off the spoon.

5-Minute Vegan Caramel Sauce? Yes, and it’s only 5 ingredients too!

This plant-based vegan caramel sauce is truly delicious and comes together in a snap. The sauce is thick and full of richness, and no one will guess it’s dairy-free. I’ve made it with both cashew butter and tahini, and it really works both ways. The cashew butter gives the sauce a more traditional flavor, tahini gives it a delicious little twist – and the sauce will be a little runnier. Of course, if you’re going the Paleo-friendly route, you’ll want to stick with cashew.

Now it’s incredibly easy to add some indulgence to everything from apple slices to dessert, real food-style! It’s lovely on dairy-free ice cream, nice cream, or my grain-free Apple Crisp. I’ve been known to eat it straight off the spoon. You might want to, too.
