How to Prepare our Vegan Chocolate Pot de Creme
The process is quite simple. In a blender, combine the coconut milk, avocado, and dates and blend until smooth.
Then, melt the chocolate in the microwave and stir in the blended mixture into the melted chocolate until obtaining a homogeneous mixture. If desired, stir in pure maple syrup for extra sweetness.
Pour mixture into ramekins, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set.
Right before serving, vegan chocolate pot de creme can be garnished with pom seeds, berries, toasted nuts, cocoa nibs, or shaved chocolate. See? Easy, peasy!
The avocado and coconut milk add creaminess to the dessert; the dates and maple syrup are for sweetness; the 90% cocoa chocolate is the one the gives the dessert that deep/rich chocolate flavor.
