As the temperatures start to soar here in NZ and summer has finally kicked in, I’m craving lots of smoothies and cool drinks.
This beauty came about after hubby asked if I could recreate his favourite salted caramel macchiato from Starbucks!
This version sure hit the spot and met his craving but without the high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavourings of the original!
Just a note to the wise….make sure you have a spoon handy to get every last bit of the caramel from the glass when you’ve finished your smoothie!
This recipe makes about 1 1/4 cups of caramel, so PLENTY left over for the rest of the week. It stores well in the fridge and can be eaten by the spoon when those cravings for something sweet kick in, or do as I did, spoon it on top of a bowl of oats, or mix it through your soaked overnight oats in the morning to take it to the next level!
This caramel sauce is super versatile and can also be used to top any cake or dessert, add to a fruit platter to impress a crowd, or just use some apple segments and eat it like nut butter. The options are endless!
Enjoy this one guys!
