These Vegan Salted Caramel Pudding Pots are an easy yet elegant dessert.
The secret for making the dairy-free, refined sugar free salted caramel is the magical mixture of buttery coconut oil, toffee-like coconut sugar, a pinch of sea salt and fragrant vanilla.
I like to use naturally sweet and creamy cashew milk and cornflour to create a luxuriously rich and perfectly smooth crème caramel-like texture. But if you’d like this to be nut free, oat milk works as a great substitute for cashew milk.
Not only are these Vegan Salted Caramel Pudding Pots incredibly delicious, but they’re also super easy to make, requiring just 6 ingredients, one pot and 15 minutes! They work really well made in advance, so they’re a wonderful dessert that can be prepared ahead if you’re entertaining.
I absolutely love the combination of the salty-sweet caramel flavour paired with the rich, creamy cashew milk. They look and taste super sophisticated yet are deceptively easy to make and even easier to eat!
