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
