5 from 1 reviews

Sugar-free and healthy date caramel sauce is creamy caramel perfection. With only 2 ingredients, it’s easy to make. Use it as a frosting, glaze or dip.


  • 4 large medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of whipping cream or coconut cream (see notes for details)


  1. Place dates and water in a blender, and pulse until you have a smooth paste.
  2. Add in the whipping cream or coconut cream, and continue to pulse until smooth. Whipping cream will continue to thicken the more it is blended, so stop at the right consistency for a sauce, dip or frosting (see above for more information.)
  3. Store the date sauce in a jar in the fridge and use within 1 week.


  • To make a thick vegan date frosting use 1/2 cup of coconut cream instead of the water and whipping cream. Pulse until smooth and thick.
  • It is important to use the large, soft medjool dates in this recipe. Other dried dates won’t be as caramelly sweet.
  • I only have a regular blender, so my sauce dates didn’t get quite as smooth as they would if I had a Vitamix or Ninja blender (affiliate links.)
