rich caramel butterscotch sauce served over raw vanilla ice cream

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

Butterscotch is not a common flavor that I come across in the raw world of flavors.  But this recipe reminded me of that warm, buttery, rich flavor that butterscotch imparts.   Must have been the perfect combination of ingredients.  I would like to say that I had planned it that way, but I didn’t. :) Planned or not; I wanted to dive headfirst into this sauce.

Have you ever seen that movie, Patch Adams?  There was an elderly woman (if I remember correctly) who had a life dream of sitting in a pool of spaghetti noodles. And before she passed away Patch Adams made that dream come true.

Before I pass, I hope that I have a “Patch Adams” in my life who will make my dream come true too.  What is my dream?  To sit in a tub of thick, creamy, lotion-like substance…I am not picky as to what it is… and if it happened to be this Rich “Caramel Butterscotch” Sauce… well, who am I to complain!

I use to work in a compounding pharmacy and would make thick, creamy, prescription ointments and creams.  EVERY time I made them, I fought the urge to bury my fingers in it.  I wonder what triggers such desires? :)   Am I the only one with this odd desire?  Fess up!

This sauce pairs beautifully with my Raw Macadamia Nut Ice Cream with Candied Pecans.  But I can also imagine it as a dip for sliced apples, or dollop on top of a piece of cake… all this thinking is making me hungry, so I best wrap this up.


Yields 2 cups


  1. It is best to soften the dates prior to blending them.
    • Place the dates in a bowl and cover with warm water.
    • Let them sit for about 10 minutes or until soft.
    • When ready to use, hand-squeeze the excess water out and place the dates in the blender.
  2. Add the macadamia nut cream base, water, almond butter, pecans, agave, cinnamon, and salt.  Blend on high until creamy smooth.  You can add more water if you want a thinner sauce.
  3. Store the caramel sauce in a mason jar or squeeze bottle (my preference to ease of use.)  Keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.

    most of your recipes are loaded with dates and cashews; and you use agave…would be nice to have other options ( raw/vegan) as you have such great info here!

    Hi Ammie.
    Great recipes just 2 questions. First what do you mean with candied pecans? And Can I use an oven in a low temperature instead of a deshydrator to make the Oaty pumpkin spices cones???. Thanks.
