Vegan Salted Caramel Easy Home Recipe
Salted Caramel is one of the world’s most sought after flavours, from ice cream to protein shakes it has developed as one of the top flavours around today with it’s intense sweet and savoury flavour. As the world continues to adapt to Veganism we are adapting more and more recipes from our old favourites, and the one I’m covering today is the Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe. The main reason I’m re-creating this recipe is because other plant-loving vegans like myself are still on restricted diets, but you really don’t have to be!
After much experimentation and comparisons across different recipes, I’ve managed to come up with the perfect Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe that tastes almost identical to the original, so you don’t have to miss out on it for any desserts or snacks day to day.
Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe:
Prep time: 20 minutes plus cooling
Servings: 20 (in line with these instructions)
For this Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
Ingredients for Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe
- 300g brown sugar
- 400ml of coconut milk
- 40g of Dairy-free spread
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of salt
Instructions: How to make Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe
- Put the sugar and coconut milk in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until fully combined.
- Bring the combination to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes occasionally stirring.
- Continue to stir until it has thickened and slightly reduced.
- Remove from the heat and whisk in the spread.
- Add Vanilla and Salt at this stage.
- Stir and pour into sterile jars and leave for the cooling period, the sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
- Shelf life on the Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe is 1 month at room temperature, although once opened use within a week.
A tip – To sterilise your jars you can either add boiling water to the jar for 30 seconds, or wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse with cold water, dry them very well in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 120*c, if you have metal lids these can be boiled for 10 minutes then left to dry.
Each serving will contain around 70 calories, 3g fat, 2g Saturates, 10g Sugar and 0.1g Salt if mixed well.
The Bottom Line
I really hope this Vegan Salted Caramel Recipe helps satisfy the sweet and savoury craving, it’s definitely helped mine! It freezes very well so you can keep a few batches if you decide to scale it up a little more, but it will need to be left in a fridge overnight to defrost well! The best thing about this recipe is that not only is it much healthier than the non-vegan alternative, it also ticks all of the boxes when you are looking for a healthier alternative. The levels of saturates that are present are much lower and in turn much healthier all round for you!
To conclude, as I’ve said before there’s virtually nothing that cannot be adapted to your vegan diet. There’s always great alternatives to meat and dairy products out there, whether you find them online or go through cook books, blogs such as mine or even browsing your local Tesco section for hundreds of choices across the board.
Until next time, I look forward to bringing you another Vegan alternative to a meat/dairy recipe!
