Useful tips for No-Heat Vegan Caramel

This should be obvious, but make sure to use pitted dates.

The mixture will get warm, that’s okay! Just make sure you’re blending on high so the cooling system kicks in and protects the motor.

If you aren’t getting the smoothness you’re looking for, add a little bit of coconut milk at a time.

Would likely be very good with the addition of some cinnamon.
