Little Green Spoon's Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Sauce

This is AMAZING. It's actually too good, I ate far too much of it this time while photographing! It's so decadent, gorgeously thick and perfectly sticky and will take any dessert to a whole new level. Because it's quite rich my favourite way to have it is just with some greek yoghurt or fruit but it's incredible on top of some dairy free ice cream (nob? is my favourite!).

Makes 200ml

1 Can of Coconut Milk, Refrigerated Overnight
1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
1 Teaspoon of Coarse Salt
1 & 1/2 Cups of Coconut Sugar
1/4 Cup of Water


Step 1: Scoop the coconut cream from the top of the cold can of coconut milk, don't use any of the coconut water. Add 1 cup of it to a pot on medium heat with the coconut oil. Let it all melt and come to a boil, then pour it into a bowl and set aside.
Step 2: Add the water and coconut sugar to the pot and cook on medium heat, stirring gently until all of the sugar is dissolved.
Step 3: Carefully stir in the coconut mixture and allow it to bubble into a rolling boil (adjust heat if needed). Let it bubble and simmer, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes. When it's your desired thickness, stir in a good pinch of coarse salt and then take it off the heat. I let mine bubble away for about 10 minutes so it was really thick!
