A traditional food of Native Americans, Mesquite Powder is made from collecting the ripened seed pods of the mesquite tree and grinding into a fine powder. Earth Circle Organics’ Mesquite Powder has a unique molasses flavor and can be  used in smoothies or incorporated into baked goods.

ECO Easy Vegan Caramel incorporates the molasses flavor of mesquite with the decadence of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and the light sweetness of pitted dates. A quality high speed food processor is ideal for getting a smooth finish for the sauce.
