  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk, solid part only
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract


  • Refrigerate a can of coconut milk overnight or until the liquid and solid portions have separated. Scoop the hardened cream into a small saucepan. Save the liquid for a smoothie.
  • Stir in 1 cup coconut sugar and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a rapid simmer. Bubbles will completely cover the surface.
  • Continue to cook, stirring frequently until the sauce begins to darken and thicken slightly, about 10 minutes. It should coat the back of a spoon thinly when it's done.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • It will thicken as it cools. Use immediately, or store in a glass jar. It will last for a week to 10 days in the refrigerator.
  • Gently heat before serving.
