Hi there! I know it’s the weekend, but with my dietetic internship and all, I didn’t get the chance to post anything this week. So here I am, writing a blog post on a Saturday morning!
Now, since autumn is coming, I have many salted caramel recipes in mind. For that reason, I wanted to share my date caramel recipe with you guys. Trust me, you’ll see date caramel in my next couple of posts! I hope that’s not a problem? 😉
Date caramel is a life saver when you rely on fruits to sweeten your desserts. I use it as a replacement for caramel obviously, but also as a replacement for liquid sweeteners. Bananas are great and all, but I usually use them in frozen desserts (nice cream!) or banana flavored recipes. If I want any other flavor, it can be hard to mask the taste of bananas. This is when I turn to dates.
Here are my tips for date caramel:
The list could go on!
I made a big batch of this caramel the other week and used it in many recipes that I’ll share with you in the next month. Am I the only one who loves salted caramel recipes in autumn!?
Feel free to add different flavors using nut butters or vanilla extract.
