Dark Chocolate Pots de Creme

  1. Rinse and drain the soaked cashews.
  2. Place all pots de creme ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor. Whirl away until mixture is smooth and creamy. For a thinner mixture, add 1-2 tbsp more of almond milk and mix well.
  3. Spoon mixture evenly into four ramekins. Chill until ready to serve (at least 30 minutes; but to really firm up, about an hour)

Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped Cream

  1. Open can of coconut cream/coconut milk and scoop off only the top-most, thick layer of coconut cream, into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla bean.
  3. Using an electric mixer, blend cream, sugar and vanilla bean together until whipped cream forms and mixture is well combined.
  4. Top each vegan dark chocolate pot de creme with a dollop of whipped cream when ready to serve.


Chilling coconut cream before use ensures a tasty whipped product in no time! Chill for at least 30 minutes, but preferably for 4-6 hours. If your whipped cream is running, try adding 1-4 tbsp of tapioca flour or all-purpose flour to the cream. Whip away and it should stiffen.
