4 Ingredient Sticky Caramel Sauce

If you’re trying to lose weight at Christmas, it can be tough when all you can think about is the types of food you shouldn’t be eating.

If Christmas desserts covered in caramel are your weakness – this recipe is for you. Using just 4 ingredients, this recipe doesn’t call for any added sugar as it is sweetened with honey instead.

Coconut milk offers a richness of flavour as well as some sweetness too. Can’t find tahini? Try using 100% nut butter instead.  This recipe comes straight from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and shows how you can enjoy decadent treats even while you lose weight.

While it isn’t an everyday option, this caramel sauce is sure to hit the spot when you are craving something decadent over the festive season. It’s perfect to use on leftover Christmas desserts.

What can you do with this amazing concoction?

  • Dip strawberries in it
  • Pour it over your home made ice cream
  • Use it as a sauce for Christmas pudding
  • Serve it with some homemade scones instead of jam
  • Serve it over some chunks of frozen banana
  • Eat it off a spoon…it’s that good…
