Salted Caramel Pot de Creme

Salted Caramel Pot de Creme - just three ingredients - vegan

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked overnight
  • 1 cup coconut cream (Place a can of full fat coconut milk in the refrigerator for a few days then open the can and scoop out the cream from the top. Reserve the water to use if needed to blender to mix all ingredients.)
  • 1/2 cup Liefie's Salted Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce

Method:

Combine cashews, coconut cream and caramel in a high speed blender. Tamp down ingredients well then start the machine on low. If it's not mixing well add a few tablespoons of the reserved coconut water at a time until it starts to blend. Turn machine to high and let ingredients blend fully. You'll need to scrape down the sides often to ensure everything is smooth and creamy.

Pour into small jars or ramekins and chill overnight. Top with additional Liefie's Salted Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce and serve. 

Vegan Crepes Caramel

Vegan Crepes Caramel

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup dairy free milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Liefie's Cardamom Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce (or any flavor)

Method:

Whisk ingredients together until smooth. Add more liquid if needed to ensure batter is thin enough to make nice flat crepes. Let batter rest for 1-2 hours. (This allows flour to absorb the liquid and makes a more tender crepe.)

Pour a ladle of batter into non-stick pan and turn pan quickly to spread evenly over the bottom. Flip crepe when batter looks dry and cook for a few more minutes on the other side. The crepe should be light brown and cooked through.  Fold into quarters and drizzle liberally with any flavor of Liefie’s Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce. 

These are perfect for breakfast or dessert.

Vegan Salted Caramel Lava Cakes

Gooey vegan chocolate cakes filled with salted caramel. Decadent, easy, and perfect for date night!

YIELD: 2 cakes

PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOK TIME: 10 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoons ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar, ground until fine (or granulated)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Liefie's Salted Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce - cold.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Combine the flax and water, and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a medium-sized glass bowl. Set over a pot of simmering water, and let melt, using a rubber spatula to stir occasionally. Once melted, remove from heat.
  4. Pour applesauce, sugar, vanilla, and flax/water mixture into the melted chocolate, and mix. Add the salt, cocoa powder, and baking powder, and whisk until just incorporated. Add the flour and whisk again until just incorporated.
  5. Liberally grease 2 7-ounce ramekins. Divide ⅔ of the batter among the ramekins, then put ½ tablespoon of salted caramel in the center of each ramekin. Top with the remaining batter, spreading evenly.
  6. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes, then use a knife to gently cut along the sides to separate the cake from the ramekin. Top one ramekin with an upside-down plate, then invert. Let the ramekin sit upside down for 15 seconds, and gently lift. The center will be a little sunken and very gooey - that's what you want! Repeat with other ramekin.
  7. Serve warm with additional Liefie's Salted Coconut Milk Caramel Sauce.
