It goes without saying that we here at One Green Planet love us some vegan dessert — and we think it’s safe to say that most are right there with us. Whether we’re reaching for a slice of decadent pumpkin spice cheesecake or a whole foods, plant-based cookie, we crave it all.

Sometimes, though, we like to take an already good dessert and jazz it up with some toppings. We’ll add a spread of Apple Cinnamon Walnut Butter on top of No-Bake Sweet Potato Bars or these Fudgy Chocolate Chickpea Squares, for example. It’s just a little something extra that makes the indulgence all the more worth it. Today, we’re going to talk about one dessert-enhancing recipe in particular from the Food Monster App. Check it out!

This Southern Pecan Caramel Sauce by Lisa Lotts is the perfect topping for all of your seasonal vegan treats.

This recipe is for a decadent, dairy-free caramel sauce that’s filled with toasted pecans and rich coconut milk. It tastes just like pecan pie filling, without the crust! Perfect on ice cream, on top of pumpkin pie, or by the spoonful — we’re not here to judge, just to provide you with lots of mouthwatering vegan recipes.
