  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • dash of kosher or sea salt
  • 2/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • In a medium saucepan, combine coconut palm sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add milk and cook over medium heat, until desired thickness. Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir to combine. Refrigerate unused sauce. If sauce becomes too thick after refrigerating, add additional milk and reheat over low heat in a small saucepan until smooth.
  • Drizzle sauce over bread pudding, cinnamon rolls and other favorite desserts.


TIP: Caramel Sauce is best if eaten immediately after cooling slightly.
Coconut Palm Sugar can be found in the organic section of most grocery stores and at Whole Foods, Earth Fare and Trader Joe's.

  1. I enjoy a lot of the recipes you share and was curious about this one so I clicked over from pinterest. I had never heard of coconut palm sugar before so I googled it of course. Found an interesting article about it and will post below. As much as this sugar might be convenient one has to wonder if using it would not be in the best interest of all if we want to continue using coconut products of all kinds and reaping those benefits. Coconut is awesome and I would hate to be unable to continue using it.
