I admit this is my very fist time making caramel sauce. And it turned out so heavenly smooth and creamy! Traditionally caramel is made with butter, but I am using coconut cream and it works just as well. It is wonderfully gooey and only takes 15 mins to make.

You are going to need:

  •         1 cup of sugar
  •         1 cup of full-fat coconut milk
  •         Salt
  1. Heat a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the sugar and stir for about 1 minute to heat through.
  3. Add the coconut milk and a pinch of salt, stir to combine
  4. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a  simmer at low heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until caramel has thickened, stirring occasionally. It should be sticking to the back of your spatula or spoon.
  5. Remove pan from heat. Allow to cool slightly for 10 minutes then transfer to a jar with a lid.

This sauce can be used to top up popcorn or as a lush sweetener in hot drinks. Caramel mocha anyone?

I’ve been adding it to my turmeric lattes and it’s a game changer. Just make sure to use unsweetened soy milk.

Try it in coffee instead of store bought flavoured syrups, many of them contain artificial stuff and glucose-fructose sugar which is best to avoid.

If you make this sauce and share it online, remember to tag me!


Have a beautiful day, Marina xx
