Dulce de leche is a sweet carmel like sauce. Creamy and sweet with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. It is delicious to top fresh fruit, crepes, ice cream or even just by the spoonful.
1 can full fat coconut milk (I like this brand Aroy-D Coconut Milk 14oz you can buy it on amazon or at a oriental market. The only ingredients are coconut and water)
3/4 c coconut sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp vanilla
Add all the ingredients to a pot and heat on medium high until you get a light boil. Reduce the heat to low just so that the mixture will simmer. Cook for 40 min. Stir occasionally. The dulce de leche with thicken to a consistency like soft butter once it is cooled. If you want it to pour easily just heat slightly before using.
One of my favorite ways to use it is in sweet crepes with fresh fruit. This is by far the best crepe recipe that I have found. The taste and texture is just like a traditional french crepe. Jane’s Healthy Kitchen Crepe Recipe
