What if I said you can eat a vat of sweet, sticky, and amazing caramel sauce for almost no calories?
You’d laugh, right?
And then you’d tell me to stop mocking you, because I know how much you love caramel.
I understand, because I used to have dreams about swimming in a pool of rich caramel and having to eat my way out. That was a nice dream.
But in all seriousness, I am not kidding. For only 20 calories, you can eat about 1/2 cup of caramel sauce.
And not that fake, aspartame loaded junk that tastes like liquified, carbonated cardboard.
I don’t think I’ve had a better caramel, healthy or not since, well …ever .
If you’re still having your doubts, I’m going to give you a few seconds to get over them.
And now you’re over them.
You know why? There is a vat of the most delicious caramel that just happens to be almost calorie free that’s calling your name.
Just thank me later.
Almost Calorie Free Caramel Sauce (Sugar Free, Vegan, Gluten Free, Low Calorie, Fat Free)
If I could live on this stuff, I would. Be careful if you are sensitive to xylitol, because you may experience some side effects. Just be aware…
1/2 cup xylitol (I bet erythritol would work, but I haven’t tried it.) *Update: Yes, xylitol does contain calories. If you want to keep the caramel calorie free, please use ERYHTRITOL. Sorry for the confusion!*
1 teaspoon of agave nectar
Combine all ingredients in a pot over medium heat. Stir constantly until the xylitol is completely melted, as it burns easily. Keep stirred and cook until mixture is a dark amber color, about 5 minutes. Make sure to not over cook. Let cool for a bit, it gets really hot!
Serve on a latte, ice cream, oatmeal, cake, or just about anything else (like a spoon)!
Note: The sauce may seem a little thin at first, but just stick it in the freezer for a few minutes, and it’ll thicken right up!
