  • 1 cup Medjool Dates, pitted (about 8-10)
  • 2 Tbsp Full-Fat canned Coconut Milk
  • ¼ tsp Sea Salt
  • ½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 apples- (sweet kind, I used fuji)
  • 1 scoop Whey Protein Pops


  1. Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. You may need to occasionally scrape down the sides.
  3. Stick a popsicle stick about 2 inches deep into the top of each apple. Get a cookie sheet and lay either freezer or wax paper down on the bottom of the cookie sheet.
  4. Spread caramel evenly around the outside of your apple.
  5. Sprinkle Whey Pops on top of caramel.
  6. Set caramel apples on cookie sheet so that the popsicle stick is straight in the air.

*Extra caramel can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
