This homemade Salted Vegan Caramel Sauce is such an easy recipe. It’s ┬árich, creamy and delicious. You’d never guess it’s dairy free, gluten free, oil free, and sugar free. Say what! – and only five ingredients, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, instant coffee and sea salt. This is a must try recipe you guys!




  1. Add coconut milk and maple syrup to a heavy bottomed sauce pot. Bring it to a simmer ( medium heat or less) and cook for 20-25 minutes (uncovered), stirring very frequently with a spatula. Scape down sides of the pot a few times. The mixture should slightly darken in colour and of course get thicker. See video below?
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the rest of ingredients
  3. Enjoy!


  • The sauce will thicken quite a bit when it cools so I like to warm the sauce in the microwave before serving.
  • And just a heads up- The instant coffee is the flavour bomb for this recipe. It’s very subtle, trust me but adds to the rich caramel flavour beautifully. It’s a must, I always keep regular and decaf instant coffee in my cupboard.
