Decadent Chocolate Sauce

by Maggie on July 20, 2011

We’re in full Summer mode, and we’re having a blast!

Naturally, we’ve been eating lots and lots of homemade ice cream and making lots of homemade popsicles.


We were craving chocolate sundaes last week so we put our heads together and came up with this delightfully simple dairy-free chocolate sauce.

Serve it with ice cream, eat it by the spoon, or add a little more milk and pour it into popsicle moulds.

Dairy-Free Chocolate Sauce

½ cup of full-fat coconut milk (lite would work too)
1 cup homemade (or store-bought) nut milk
1/3 cup maple syrup or agave*
1 tsp vanilla
3-4 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder

Combine coconut milk, nut milk, sweetener, vanilla, and cacao powder in your blender (an immersion blender works too). Whiz until combined. Pour over ice cream and refrigerate any leftovers.

*We also made this a little less sweet by omitting the maple syrup and using 4 soaked and pitted dates. Pete and I loved it; the kids preferred the maple syrup version.

Yield: Approximately 2 cups

Thanks Valerie! It’s funny because I made Gena’s Cheezy Hemp Dip tonight after I saw it on your blog today :) It was soooo good. I can always trust your recommendations. I am sure you’ll love the chocolate sauce!

I LOVE THAT THIS USES RAW CACAO!! I’ve discovered only recently how much I really love it–even when sweetened with stevia, I find it just doesn’t have a bitter taste. YUM. This sauce looks fantastic–but more importantly, how cute are those kiddles??? Seriously cute. :D

Ricki I DEFINITELY have a raw cacao addiction! I am almost on that stevia train so lookout! Thanks, I agree with you – my kiddies are seriously cute. This makes it seriously difficult to say no to them! xo
