Servings: 4


  • 12 Pitted Dates, chopped into quarters (optional)*
  • 1 cup hot coconut milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup**
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil



  • Place the chopped pitted dates into a glass bowl (or another heat proof bowl).
  • Bring the coconut milk to boil. Pour the hot milk into the glass bowl over the dates. Cover the bowl with a glass plate. Let them soak for 15 minutes.
  • Once they have finished soaking, add the dates and milk into your blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. There should be no chunks.
  • Transfer the date mixture into a small saucepan. Use a spatula to scrape the sides. Turn the heat to medium/high.
  • Add in the maple syrup, salt and coconut oil. Lightly stir with a whisk until it starts to bubble. Boil for 1 minute.
  • Once it has finished boiling, turn the heat down and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Once your sauce has simmered for twenty minutes, scrape into a glass container. Refrigerate until it has completely cooled.
  • Serve with apples or as a sugar free topping for waffles



*If you have a high powered blender chopping the dates before soaking them is optional.
**If you want a sweeter flavour add another TBSP of maple syrup.
