I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.

Salted caramel has always been a popular flavor in almost any desserts. What I like with this flavor is the balance of its taste. The combination of the sweetness and saltiness is just perfect to satisfy one's craving.

I decided to make my own version of salted caramel sauce without cream. I don't have cream in my pantry so I needed to use an alternative ingredient. I replace heavy cream with milk. The outcome is similar to the one we used to. Here's the recipe that you can enjoy!

Tips and Techniques

  1. Use salted butter instead but make sure to lessen the amount of salt added.
  2. Increase the amount of butter if preferred to have a strong buttery flavor.
  3. Adjust the amount of vanilla if necessary. Some brands have stronger vanilla essence than any other. This means a lesser amount of vanilla extract is needed.
  4. Decrease the amount of milk to produce thicker saucer.
  5. Add any variety of milk based on your preference.
  6. Drizzle it on top of any sweet foods such as your favorite fried banana egg rolls or pancakes without baking powder.

      Hello Liz,

      Yes, it's true. Most recipes of today recommend almond and soya milk as an alternative for ordinary milk. I like these two better as both contribute different exciting tastes to a recipe.

      Almond milk is becoming more popular as well as soya milk.

      Hi Liz,

      That's a good option. For me, I can't have any ordinary milk because I'm lactose intolerant. So I need to use other cow's milk alternatives such as almond milk. Actually, I'm making my own milk at home. It's so easy.

      In recent years I have dropped down to using skimmed milk whenever possible as it has a lower fat content.

      Hello Liz,

      I would say yes. There are varieties of milk that far healthier than cream. This recipe doesn't call for a particular kind of milk.

      This sounds like a healthier alternative by dropping the cream.

      Hi Linda,

      I also enjoy eating salted caramel icecream and chocolate. I simply like the combination of tastes.

      I love salted caramel ice cream, so I think I might love your sauce as well. It sounds both easy to make and delicious.
