Vegan Coconut Salted Caramel

November 13 2014

Yes, you did read correctly. Vegan salted caramel! I was VERY excited when I created this lush vegan caramel recipe. It combines two of my favourite things: coconut and caramel. This is a healthier alternative to the salted caramel recipe found with the Spiced Poached Pears. I served this recipe to my husband Mike and he couldn’t tell the difference. Yes!

There is a subtle coconut flavour to this caramel recipe, but being a massive coconut fan, I am totally fine with that! I usually use coconut yoghurt as I find the yoghurt thickens the sauce quicker than coconut cream. Coconut cream still works well, but a little more stirring is required.





Vegan Coconut Salted Caramel  |  Gather & Feast


10 mins
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut yoghurt (or coconut cream)
  • 1 tsp sea salt 


  1. Add the coconut sugar, coconut oil and coconut yoghurt into a small saucepan.
  2. Stir over medium heat until the ingredients are combined and smooth.
  3. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the caramel becomes thick and coats the back of the spoon.
  4. Take the caramel off the heat and stir through the salt.
  5. I like to serve this with spiced poached pears.
