This vegan dulce de leche is thick, gooey, and incredibly delicious. Perfect for spreading over toasted bread, drizzled over pancakes, or eaten by a spoonful! Made with only two ingredients, this vegan dulce de leche is date-sweetened and gluten-free.
Pour a can of coconut milk into a non-stick pan. Add date syrup and a pinch of salt and vanilla extract (if using).
Bring to a gentle boil at medium heat, then reduce the heat and simmer stirring occasionally.
Simmer until the dulce de leche has reduced down by about half or until the mixture is deeper in color and thick. It should coat a spoon.
Keep in mind that dulce de leche will thicken when cooling down, do not over reduce.
Let it cool down, then pour the dulce de leche in a lidded container.
