Here’s a very easy, quick recipe to use instead of whipped toppings.
In a small saucepan combine:
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon arrowroot (tapioca or corn starch also work)
1 tablespoon date sugar (agave or coconut nectar, honey, or 1/8 teaspoon monk fruit powder)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or vanilla powder)
Whisk over medium high heat for about 2 minutes until mixture thickens. Serve warm or hot. Mixture will thicken as it cools. Store leftover sauce in the refrigerator and reheat before serving.
