Fruity Caramel Sauce Milkshake

Caramel is sugar that has been taken just to the edge of burning and the colour varies from beige to golden brown

Making caramel sauce at home is not at all difficult, and I personally prefer homemade over store bought. Just few ingredients and your sweet buttery yummylicious caramel sauce is ready.

Here is the list of ingredients you need:

For Caramel Sauce

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Combine sugar and water in a heavy-duty saucepan. 
  • Cook over medium-high heat, until mixture comes to a boil. 
  • Continue to boil, without stirring, for 10 to 14 minutes, tilting pan occasionally to keep colour even until mixture turns a deep amber colour. 
  • Remove from heat stir in condensed milk (mixture will foam up) do not scrape sides of pan. Add 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, one tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition. 
  • Stir in remaining butter and vanilla extract until smooth.
For Milkshake

  • 1/2 cup Caramel Sauce
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 apple peeled
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve and top with additional Caramel Sauce, if desired.

  • Monitoring the heat and constantly stirring when adding condensed milk and butter will give you just the right consistency.
  • Caramel sauce does not take much time to cook, but make sure it is completely cool before you use it in your shake or any other dessert.
