A teaspoon straight out of the jar (yes, it is thick enough to spoon out when it’s cool!), is perfect when you have that urge for something sweet. C’mon, I know I’m not the only one!

Plus, it goes really well with:

How to make vegan salted caramel sauce


  • white sugar
  • vegan butter
  • full-fat coconut milk
  • sea salt


Place the sugar in a heavy-based pan.

Melt over a low heat, stirring all the time.

Do not inhale the vapour. Don’t ask me how I know. :-/

Don’t let it burn!

It should take around 15 minutes to get to this stage.

Add the vegan butter/margarine, and stir well until it has melted. You will notice that the butter/marg has a lot of water, don’t worry, it will incorporate.

(Yeah, I know it looks like the Quatermass Experiment.)

Slowly pour in the coconut milk, whisking all the time. Don’t get spattered by hot caramel sauce!

Continue to whisk until the butter/marg and milk have completely incorporated.

Let the sauce boil for a minute or so, until it has thickened.

Remove from the heat, and stir in the sea salt. Pour into a sterilised jar or bottle.


(Those light bits are a gazillion tiny air bubbles!)
