This sounds like a great after school snack for the kids!
Homemade Salted Caramel Apple Dip
1 cup soft dates, pitted and pre-soaked
3 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp almond butter
dash of sea salt
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
This caramel dip is naturally sweetened, made with fiber-rich dates. A definite upgrade from traditional caramel recipes calling for butter and sugar galore! With a pinch of sea salt, this dip pairs perfectly with freshly sliced apples or pears.
1. If you’re using a standard blender or food processor, begin by soaking the dates in filtered water for 2 to 3 hours, until soft. If you own a powerful blender, there’s no need to soak. It will pulverize the dates easily!
2. Combine all of the ingredients in the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy. Can add extra almond milk, if necessary, to facilitate blending.
3. Adjust flavors to taste, and chill before serving.
4. Serve with sliced fruit or coat whole apples with the sauce. Sprinkle with chopped nuts for an added treat.
