I came across this vegan chocolate recipe on http://thevoraciousvegan.com site. She titles her post as the best dessert in the world…and I must admit. I totally agree.
For all you chocolate lovers out there, you must try this dessert! The recipe is super simple and I just happen to have all ingredients on hand to make this. The recipe calls for dark chocolate, but I used baker’s chocolate and another time I used chocolate chips… Just use what you have and have fun with this recipe.
This vegan chocolate recipe makes a smooth, decadent home made Pots de Creme using coconut milk. There is no heavy cream nor eggs in this recipe…and you get to use your blender. This way the Creme comes out smooth and ‘Creme-y’.
Chocolate Pots de Creme
- 1 14 oz can of coconut milk
- 5 oz dark chocolate
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar
- splash of vanilla
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
First, into the blender jar add the chocolate (broken into pieces), agave, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. On the stove bring the coconut milk just to a simmer then pour into your blender jar. Blend until all ingredients are smooth. Pour the chocolate goodness into little cups or ramekins. Chill for 5 hours until chocolate is firm.
I made this for a family dinner party and pulled out my girls’ little tea cups. I doubled the recipe and everyone had a little, pretty tea cup with saucer. The dessert was so rich and creamy, even the men didn’t mind eating from a tiny, flowery tea cup.
