Next on this list is the coconut milk. Yes, I said coconut milk friends. It helps to get the caramel thick and creamy, while keeping it vegan. There are a million amazing things to say about coconut milk but I’ll stick to one for right now: perfect heavy cream substitute.

Lastly, sea salt. It’s that pinch that helps to elevate all of the previous ingredients. I added only a ¼ teaspoon, but feel free to add up to ¾ teaspoon of sea salt if you desire a salted caramel. Salted caramel really is the best. I wanted to keep mine neutral so that you could alter it to your liking.


Q: Can I add anything else to my caramel sauce?

A: Yes! You could add vanilla extract, or scrape a vanilla bean for a heightened flavour. You could also add ground lavender, or even use fleur de sel instead of sea salt. That last one sounds divine!

Q: What can I use this vegan caramel sauce on?

A: You can use it as fruit dip. You can drizzle it over pancakes. You can stir it into your coffee or oatmeal. Even your batter for muffins or cupcakes at the top for a sweet swirl. You can use it in this Salted Pretzel Caramel Bark. The possibilities are endless!

Vegan Caramel Sauce – 3 Ingredients

Vegan Caramel Sauce

Category: Desserts
Vegan Caramel Sauce
  • 3/4 cup coconut or cane or organic brown sugar
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk (from the can) - the thick white part
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Vegan Caramel Sauce
  • Heat a pot over medium high heat.
  • Add the sugar and stir around the pot for about 1 minute to heat through.
  • Add the coconut milk and and sea salt stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer at low medium heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until caramel has thickened, stirring occasionally. It should be sticking to the back of your spatula or spoon.
  • You can stir in up to ¾ teaspoon extra sea salt at this point if you want salted caramel.
  • Remove pan from heat. Allow to cool slightly for 10 minutes then transfer to a jar with a lid.
  • Cover jar, and place in fridge to cool further for at least two hours. The sauce WILL thicken up much more upon cooling and also upon placing in the fridge, even if it doesn't look very thick after removing from the stove.
  • To use, simply remove from fridge and pour over anything you want. I use this for holiday pancakes, Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark and over ice cream and cakes. Enjoy!!


You can easily half this recipe, or even double it! Ensure that you’re using all coconut milk and not coconut water, else the sauce will not thicken up as much, and it will separate while cooling. This sauce lasts weeks in your fridge.

  1. This is beyond delicious! Fat content of the coconut milk you used?

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks Angie!! I actually used regular coconut milk, not full fat! I imagine full fat would probably taste even creamier, though!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Angie,

      I should clarify! I used regular coconut milk from the tin, not the carton box!

      • Judy says:

        Thanks for clarifying about canned coconut milk not coconut milk beverage from the carton…..this is very helpful 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Angie,

      I tried it again with full fat and definitely making it with that from now on! Just as tasty, but definitely creamier!

  2. Watching Elf several times is essential during Christmas!! And this caramel sauce … holy moly I want some!

  3. I love Caramel and Coconut Milk! I mean this caramel is heaven for me

  4. Helen says:

    Allergic to nuts and coconut. Any suggestions?? So frustrating sometimes. I miss caramel.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Helen! I’m assuming you’re vegan else you could make this with regular milk. I’ve been searching for ages trying to find a solution for you. The date caramel in this recipe looks promising: just use brown rice milk instead of almond milk! I really hope that helps! I’ll let you know if I find anything else.

      • If you simmer the dates on low heat for a long time, when you process them, they’ll be glossier. Give you a better result. Although, question, is someone with coconut allergy not allergic to dates, as they’re the same family?

    • Mike Pfirrman says:

      I would try seeing if you could just use Brown Rice Syrup and vanilla. If it needed thickened, you could also perhaps trying using a TBS or two of sunflower butter (not nuts). I would think that would make an amazing caramel sauce. If you’ve never had Brown Rice Syrup, right out of the jar it tastes almost like a caramel (without the vanilla).

    • Jack says:

      I assume that you’ve found a solution since your comment is old, but in case you haven’t. You can make it with Oat milk (not as creamy) or hemp milk (incredibly creamy). Though, I would add some vanilla to counteract the earthy hemp flavor.

      • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

        Thank you Jack yes we’ve found a solution but this is really solid advice.

  5. Joan says:

    I will definitely be making this! Thank you!

  6. Molly says:

    If you use the full can of coconut milk, will you also need to add more of the other ingredients?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Molly,

      Yes! A full can of coconut milk is about 1 1/2 cups, so you can increase the sugar by like 1/4 cup. Just ensure it’s ALL full fat else the caramel won’t get as thick. I hope you enjoy!!

  7. Eva says:

    Hi I made this recipe and came out tasting great!,but the problem is that the sugar kept on crystallizing while it was cooling down, I tried reheating it again and it stopped crystallizing but as it cooled it crystallized once again:( I put it in the fridge and checked on it to see that it was all crystal:( did I do anything wrong what should I do?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Eva,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the taste! That’s so weird re the crystallising, it hasn’t happened to me on the occasions I have made this, but it sounds like you may have left it on a bit too long or too high heat (instead of at simmer). Did you use the same ingredients in the post? Reheating it would actually encourage more crystallising which may have just made it worse. I don’t think you can fix it at this point, but try leaving it out on the counter for a few hours. I hope that helps! It may be easier to just make it over since the point of crystallisation sounds way past the norm.

    • CLS8888 says:

      Keeping sugar from crystalizing can be tricky business! Crystalization is a chain reaction and once it begins it causes other crystals to form. The trick is to eliminate all the crystals that could possibly seed crystalization. There are a couple of tricks you can borrow from making fudge.

      The first is to make sure all the crystals that you add (sugar) are in the contents of the pot and not ON the pot. This recipe calls for adding the sugar first. With Jessica’s permission, you may want to add the liquid first. If Jessica says no, at least try to get your sugar IN the pot rather than all over the sides.

      The second trick is to use the liquid to wash down the side of the pan as you add it in. This would involve tilting the pan and pouring the liquid down the side of the pan as you rotate the pan so that the liquid covers all of the side of the pan. Tricky but doable.

      The third trick is to simply take a clean fairly damp cloth and wipe down the entire side of the pan. Do this before it gets too hot! And don’t worry about leaving the pot side a little wet. The coming heat will quickly evaporate the water.

      The fourth trick is to put a cover on the mixture for just a minute or two when the liquid is bubbling. The steam from the liquid will collect on the top and sides of the pan and will wash down the side of the pan. Yoiu will know it has been long enough when you remove the lid and there is moisture on the side of the pan.

      The final trick is to be very careful not to stir the contents up along the side of the pan. If there is any undissolved sugar, even just a grain, it will seed the crystalization chain reaction and you will get crunchy sauce.

      Hope these do it for you and you can enjoy a nice creamy sauce. Good luck!

      • Carla says:

        I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing these tips! I make caramel frequently and could never quite figure out why sometimes it crystalises and other times not. Now I know and better yet – know how to stop it happening. Thanks again 🙂

        • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

          You’re so welcome. We’re happy that it was helpful!

  8. Kathleen says:

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful recipes. I used to make a caramel sauce and it included butter. Would vegan butter work in this recipe or does it have too much water?

  9. Kathleen says:

    By the way, I love your motto 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Kathleen,

      Aww thank you so much!! Vegan butter instead of coconut milk or in addition to it?

    • Jessica says:

      Aww thank you!!! My husband came up with it – it’s so beautiful and he said it reminded him best of the food I make!! 🙂

  10. Hannah says:

    I’m using coconut milk but it doesn’t thicken what so ever. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Hannah, how long have you been cooking it for? Did you use full fat coconut milk from the can (it’s kind of thick) or from the box?

  11. Hi Jessica,

    I appreciate this recipe. I just made the sauce and will be incorporating it with a batch of ice-cream. I did make some tweaks, but gratefully used your recipe as inspiration and as a reminder that I didn’t forget the basics of caramel.

    what I did differently –

    I heated 5 Tbsp Earth Balance until it was bubbling but not burning (at this point I also started to stir). I then added the sugar and incorporated it well into the fat while stirring. I continued stirring as the fat and sugar boiled until I started to get a light wisp of burnt sugar in the air… at that point I added full fat coconut milk mixed with .5 Tsp salt and a Tbsp home made vanilla extract. I then let this boil for a few minutes while emulsifying it with a steady whisking. Now it’s cooling, tastes delicious, and is everything caramel is supposed to be.

    Thank you again!

    • Jessica says:

      Love your changes, sounds great!! So glad you enjoyed and your welcome!

  12. Gail says:

    Perfect yummy sauce. I used it for the pineapple gooey topping of a vegan pineapple upside cake.

    • Jessica says:

      Oh I’m so happy to hear that Gail! That cake sounds amazing!!

  13. pym says:

    would this work with sugar sub? i am diabetic

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Pym,

      I haven’t tried it but it should, as long as it’s made of a sugar like crystal texture and not a powder. Please let me know and I hope you enjoy it!!

  14. Sue says:

    This was delicious and now I’m going to make it all the time to add to my coconut milk lattes , yay ! Thank you 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks so much for your feedback Sue!! SO happy that you enjoyed it! Mmmm coconut milk lattes sound DIVINE!

  15. Cindy says:

    Did your recipe and replaced sugar by maple syrup. It is AMAZING!! Had to boil it a bit more though. Thanks for your recipe!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Cindy!

      Oh yay!! I’m so happy you enjoyed it!! I’m so happy to hear it worked with you maple syrup – thanks for your feedback and you’re so welcome!!

  16. Rosie says:

    Hi Jessica

    How many weeks does this last in jars in the fridge? I’m considering this a Christmas gifts.

    Thanking you.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Rosie,

      Mine lasted several weeks – I finished mine after about three weeks in the fridge. Hope that helps! Hope these make delicious Christmas gifts – what a great idea!!

  17. Lori Smith says:

    tried your salted caramel recipe today- LOVE IT!
    thank you

  18. Sabrina says:

    I just made this and am wondering why it’s really light in color. It’s like a tan color. Should I have cooked it longer? I followed your directions exactly.

  19. Milda says:

    Do I need to refrigerate the coconut milk and only use the solids? or can i use all of it?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Milda,

      Yes. you need the solid parts! You don’t want the coconut water part at all, only the full fat.

  20. Shari says:

    This worked very well for me and tasted quite nice. Ive made it twice in the past week. However, at a simmer as stated in the directions it took nearly an hour to thicken the first time. I watched the video afterwards and would definitely recommend, for those who tried this and couldn’t get it to thicken after 15 minutes, turning up the heat and letting it boil gently. I did this the second time and it thickened in about 20 minutes.

    This is probably the best vegan caramel sauce I’ve tried so far and will definitely be adding this recipe to my permanent collection 🙂

  21. Anneka says:

    I made this salted, and it is so rich, sweet, and delicious!!! Thank you 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Anneka,

      Oh I’m so happy to hear this!! Happy New Year, and you’re so welcome!!

  22. Robin says:

    Looking forward to trying your recipe. How much do you pack the brown sugar when you measure it out? Thanks!

  23. Robin Flint says:

    We had crystals with the recipe as written. Had a good result substituting some agave nectar for some of the sugar.
    Also, wondering how much your recipe usually yields for you.
    Thank you!

  24. Abhilasha Jain says:

    Hi jessica

    i would be using regular granulated sugar for making this vegan caramel. do i need to caramelize the sugar like we do while making regulr caramel before adding the coconut milk. or should i use brown sugar?

  25. Jessica says:

    Thank you for this recipe! It was absolutely delicious and so easy to make! I added a little vanilla at the end of cooking.

  26. veganknight says:

    This recipe is ACE and so easy! cheers for this… not very healthy but who cares 🙂

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi! Thanks for the positivity on this recipe! We’re glad you like it!

  27. Tohar Dery says:

    I made this and it came out amazing!!!! I tried again, and I guess there was too much water from the coconut cream can, and it isn’t coming together, any save for this? Thanks so much!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Tohar,

      I’m so happy to hear that!! Hmm, is it separating or just not as thick?

  28. Tohar Dery says:

    Thanks so much for your quick reply! Yes, it’s separating.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Tohar,

      I would remove it from the heat, maybe let the excess drain off, then try to stir it constantly, and smoothly until it comes back together, than gradually return it to the heat. I haven’t had this happen to me, but yes it sounds like it was maybe too watery! I hope that helps!

  29. Janna says:

    If i want to make the caramel thicker do i just add more sugar? Will this caramel recipe be ok to make caramel decorations?

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Janna,

      I haven’t tried to make caramel decorations with this, but I do suspect that if you let it cook much longer then it would definitely make like soft caramel, like a toffee consistency (maybe cooking down for at least 30 minutes). I’m not sure if adding more sugar would make a difference since I haven’t tried it!

  30. Laura says:

    This vegan caramel sauce is absolutely perfect! I have finally found an adequate reppacement for my homemade caramel frappucinnos. I am super thrilled about this receipe. Thankyou for sharing. ??☕

  31. George says:

    Hi, I have a couple of questions, if possible.

    1) Is it possible to make this thicker than in the images? I’m hoping to use this as a filling for vegan macarons.
    2) Can I use alternative double cream, like soy cream? I’ve managed to track some down in a local supermarket.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi George,

      If you let it cook for much longer, maybe 10 to 20 minutes longer, it might thicken up more. I haven’t tried it so can’t verify, but I did cook it a bit longer one time and it was thicker so I think more time would help with that. Just watch it so it doesn’t burn.

      I’ve never used soy cream but soy is an amazing thickener (I use it in my vegan mayonnaise) so I think it would definitely work! I hope that helps!

  32. how can I make vegan caramels to combine with candy bars, Turtles or snickers

  33. Tara says:

    Thank you for this simple and delicious caramel sauce! I’ve tried so many dairy and soy free caramel, and this is great! I did add a little bit of arrowroot powder mixed in with a small amount of coconut milk to thicken it, and it turned out great! (I needed it for a frosting recipe so I wanted it thicker to not have to add more powdered sugar and therefore change the taste.)
    Thank you!

  34. Curls says:

    It came out light grey. How did you get that rich caramel color? Also the can of full fat (“classic” ) coconut milk had 3/4 cup of solid whites in it. Have they reduced can sizes?

    So far it tastes good. I’m waiting for it in the refrigerator!

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Curls,

      I hope it turned out! Yes definitely looking like they have reduced the solid amounts per can! But mine didn’t turn out light grey, and I made it last week. What kind of sugar did you use?

  35. Helen says:

    I just made this as a topping for shortbread and it worked brilliantly! It is so delicious. I used half dark brown muscavodo sugar and half golden caster sugar and cooked it until the temperature was about 115C. Thanks for such a fab recipe!

  36. Laura says:

    This looks perfect for my apple dipping bar I’m going to have at my bonfire party next weekend! One question…when using the canned coconut milk, do you mix the fat and the water or just use the fat? Thanks!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Laura!

      Just use the fat! You don’t want any water in this at all! I hope you enjoy!!

  37. Heather says:

    How much does this recipe make?

  38. Laura E Conant says:

    This was truly amazing. Due to dairy and corn allergies in have not had caramel in years. This was better than I remember! Plan to make an apple crisp and drizzle this over (who am I kidding? It will definitely not be a drizzle!) For Thanksgiving. Thank you!!

    • Jessica says:

      Aww I’m so so happy to hear that Laura!! I hope you enjoy so much over your desserts and have a happy Thanksgiving!! P.S. it’s amazing on ice cream too!

  39. Kelli says:

    Thank you for this recipe. I am doing a conversion to vegan for an original dessert in my nutrition class for my culinary program. I will be making modifications so it matches my other recipe (like adding coffee and vanilla but I wanted to let you know that I’m giving you credit for the caramel base of the sauce. I hope it turns out well. I will try to write back and let you know.

    I do wish you’d have listed the total output of the recipe. I don’t suppose most people measure caramel when pouring for their sweet fix, though. Lol

    Thank you!

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Kelli,

      That’s so great and I hope it works out well for you! It makes about ¾ cup – I just keep forgetting to add it in when I make it! Enjoy and good luck and thank you for giving me credit!

  40. Amy says:

    This caramel sauce is delicious! I am pleasantly surprised by the great taste of vegan caramel. While it was simmering in the pot, I made sure to brush the sides of the pot with a little bit of water, with a pastry brush, to prevent sugar crystals from forming. I would also recommend doubling the recipe, that will yield a small jar of caramel sauce. If you’re gonna make homemade caramel, which is a bit more time-consuming than store-bought, you might as well make more 🙂 Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Amy,

      So happy to hear that!!! You’re so welcome and I agree double of this recipe is always a great idea!

    • Jessica says:

      Also love your tip re brushing the sides with a pastry brush!!

  41. Heather says:

    I just discovered your blog – In love with your photos, stories, and recipes. This caramel sauce is to die for – so easy and rich with coconut sugar. I have added different spices to change up the flavor for fun, but there has not been one person that has come to my house for coffee that has not fallen in love with this caramel sauce. Thank you!

  42. Margie says:

    I make homemade caramel as a special gift at the holidays, but my boss is vegan, so I tried this recipe.

    While it is delicious, it doesn’t taste anything like caramel, but rather tastes like a very sweet coconut sauce.

    Did you try making it using the traditional method of caramelizing sugar with water and a tiny bit of lemon juice, then adding the coconut milk?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Margie! Thank you for commenting. We’re sorry you were not as satisfied with the caramel taste as we are. Trying the method you mentioned may cause crystallisation. If you do try we would be happy to hear how it turns out!

  43. Natasha Soliar says:

    Thank you so very much….I had a craving for caramel this afternoon to have with Digestive biscuits. I had all the ingredients using the creamed coconut I’d created as double cream over Christmas (been infused cinnamon, cardamon and vanilla. A little cocoa and I’m super excited about how this caramel fusion will be with my cup of tea. Thank you in advanced.

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      You’re so welcome Natasha! We really hope that you enjoyed this recipe!

  44. Erin says:

    It’s super delicious, but mine came out tan in color and then separated in the fridge. Any idea why? I used full fat coconut milk from the can, brown sugar, and sea salt.

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Erin I’m so sorry it didn’t work out perfectly for you. I want ask this so we can solve this issue together. Did any of the coconut water from the can get into the sauce when making it?

      • Erin Garner says:


        • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

          Hmm. The only other thing I can think of is the cooking time ( It separates when it is heated too long) or a not up to snuff batch of coconut cream. It sounds like you did a great job sticking to the instructions. My only suggestion would be to try a different brand of coconut milk. The one we use that we found to be pretty consistent was the Thai kitchen coconut milk . I hope this was somewhat helpful.

          • Erin Garner says:

            I figured it out. I didn’t cook it long enough. In my worry to not overcook it, I undercooked it. Thanks so much for the help though. My daughter loves caramel but has developed a bunch of allergies this past year. She is loving being able to have good tasting caramel again.

  45. Jody says:

    My teenage daughter needed to bring a vegan dish for a potluck with friends tonight. We decided to make this for a dip with Granny Smith apples. I used regular sugar which I caramelized before adding the thick coconut milk. The sugar ended up seizing this way but I just kept stirring at a low boil and it dissolved turning out delicious. This was my first time using coconut milk. One question though – any recommendations on what to do with the thin coconut milk left from the can?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Jody I’m glad you enjoyed our recipe! You could definitely add it to a chickpea curry recipe or our tikka massala recipe. I hope this helps!

  46. Meadbh says:

    Do you think i could make chocolate carmel eggs out of these if put chocolate in egg moulds and fill them with the carmel? Would it be thick and gooey enough?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Meadbh you could definitely use it in you chocolate caramel eggs. They would definitely be thick and gooey enough. I hope this helps.

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Let me add that if you want it thicker, you can also cook it down for an extra 10 minutes!

  47. Ellie says:

    It’s pancake day and the only caramel sauce I could find, that I needed for the pancakes, bananas and vegan ice cream I am craving contains condensed milk ?
    So after googling a recipe came across this. Now I didn’t have any coconut milk in my cupboard and only a small amount of brown sugar. I only needed a small amount for my pancakes and I did have some soya cream, so I used 3 level desert spoons of brown sugar to 4 desert spoons of soya cream and the result – Amazing caramel sauce ? Happy pancake day!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Ellie,

      Yay! That’s so amazing and I’m so happy to hear! Happy Pancake Day to you too!!

  48. GABRIEL says:

    I’m not on a paleo or vegan diet but my family needs a sugar with a lower GI, and coconut sugar is my best option. What do you think I could use other than coconut milk?

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Gabriel,

      I’m honestly not sure what else would work here other than coconut milk, since the fat from it is needed for this to thicken up like dairy caramel sauce. Sorry I couldn’t have been more help!

  49. SallyJ says:

    I used this recipe in order to make banoffee pie for my vegan daughter. She loved it and I was amazed how easy it was to make. Thank You.

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Thank you so much for reading and leaving a positive review Sally. We feel really happy that you were able to use this to make a dish for your daughter.

  50. Minoo says:

    Sounds yummy. Can I use coconut cream instead of milk?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Minoo! You should definitely be able to use the coconut cream. I this recipe it asks for you to use the cream that settles at the top of the can so it’s essentially the same thing!. We just know that the can is more readily available! I hope this helps! Thank you for reading!

  51. Brittany says:

    I’m so excited to try this! I know it wouldn’t be vegan, but could you replace the coconut milk with regular milk and still have it work?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Brittany we haven’t tested this replacement but it should be able to work. I hope this helps!

      Hi Amy 1 can should be enough, but sometimes there are cans that really cheat you with storing more water than milk. So my best suggestion would be to have 2 cans. I hope everything works out!

    Hi, this looks awesome, I just tried it and it’s gone greyish and kinda candy floss texture. What did I do wrong? 😞

      Hi Chris, I’m sorry it didn’t work, let me see if I can help. It sounds like you may have cooked the sauce at too high a temperature. Let me ask as well did you use the cream section of the coconut milk only?
