Totally Vegan, Totally Delicious Caramel Sauce

I created this. Yes, I did! Ok, well, truthfully, I adapted this from another recipe. However, I’m pleased. This recipe is totally body friendly and, not only good, but good for you.
This is an ultra-healthy vegan ‘Caramel’ sauce. The ingredients inside are totally body friendly.

 

1 cup Sunflower Butter (room temp)
¼ tsp Salt
2 tbsp Yacon Butter
¾ cup Raw Organic Agave Syrup (it’s less processed than regular agave syrup)
½ to ¾ cup of your favorite ‘room temp’ non-dairy milk (I used coconut milk)
1 tsp Vanilla

Procedure

Place ingredients in a bowl and whisk – no blender needed unless you want to use it – and VIOLA. You have a super healthy caramel sauce that you can use in place of regular caramel. Feel free to tweak it to your liking and specifications. This sauce is kinda thick, so if you want to use it for coffee, thin it out a bit with a little more non-dairy milk.
This is a good dip for my apples.

Nutritional Value of Yacon

As mentioned, yacon tubers are mostly composed of fructooligosaccharides and water. This means that the majority of the carbohydrate sugars cannot be digested by the body, resulting in a very low-calorie level and a prevention of excess sugar coming into the bloodstream. Yacon also helps the body increase its vitamin and mineral absorption of all other foods, so while there aren’t many vitamins and minerals in yacon itself, it is very important for the intake of these essential components of human health. That being said, yacon is still rich in potassium, calcium, and phosphorous.

Health Benefits of Yacon

The health benefits of Yacon include its ability to regulate blood sugar levels, monitor cholesterol and aid in weight loss, among others.
