  • 1 tin chilled coconut milk - thick bit only
  • 70 g dairy-free dark chocolate - at least 70% cocoa solids
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp good quality almond extract - optional
  • Handful flaked almonds to decorate - optional


  • Place the tin of coconut milk in the fridge (I keep mine in there all the time in case I need just the thick part!) - ideally over night
  • Remove the tin of coconut milk from the fridge, turn gently upside down and open. Pour the liquid into a container (use in a smoothie or a curry another time) and scoop out the thick part into a bowl
  • Whisk the coconut milk with a hand held electric whisk until light and fluffy
  • Place the dark chocolate plus 4tbsp of the reserved coconut water into a bowl and melt, either over a pan of boiling water, or by putting in the microwave in 10 second bursts and stirring in between each burst
  • Gently fold the melted chocolate and optional almond extract, through the whipped coconut cream
  • Divide between four ramekins, scatter with optional flaked almonds and serve immediately, or chill until required
