Is there anything on this planet that goes with apples better than caramel? Um… nothing! This time of year, I love dipping my apples into caramel sauce, but eee-gads… all of that processed sugar? No thank you. So I made a much healthier version to enjoy. It’s just as good, has all-natural sugars instead of processed sugars, is super healthy, and delicious! Check it out…
I could seriously eat my weight in apples dipped in caramel sauce. Like, no joke. I had to create a healthier version of this.
Did you know that Medjool dates taste just like caramel? You. Are. Welcome.
Dates are rich in antioxidants and are a good source of vitamin B, iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, and healthy fiber. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. Did you know that vitamin B6 can improve brain performance?
Don’t limit this sauce to just apples. Dip some gluten free pretzels in it. Drizzle it over popcorn. Drizzle it over any dessert worthy of that yummy caramel flavor. When you mix it up in your Nutri Ninja or blender, you can always add more creamer to make it a thinner consistency.
One quick word of warning, dates are high in the Glycemic Index. Even though they are all natural, so while you are eliminating processed sugars, don’t go crazy and eat the entire container!
