Vegan Date Caramel Sauce (vegan, gluten-free, food-allergy friendly) -

Dates are one of my loves. I keep pitted deglet noor dates in my freezer and grab one or two when I need a sweet treat. I make date paste to use as a sweetener in baked goods and homemade ice creams, too. I also make a killer chocolate sauce with dates that I'll share with you soon.

Dates have a naturally caramel-like flavor. That makes them the ideal choice to blend into a dip for apples or pears (or cookies!).

This Vegan Date Caramel Sauce is so simple and so good, there's no reason not to blend up a batch right away!
