Benefits of Hibiscus Tea

Date Caramel

Thick, luscious, creamy & sweet Date Caramel. No cooking is involved & it can be ready in minutes. It's refined sugar & gluten-free & you can customize the thickness to make it as thick & spreadable or as thin and sauce-like as you want!  I love that is really has a caramelly flavor. And adding a tahini gives it a buttery taste to it. And way healthier! Enjoy!
