If you’ve heard of Paleo, you know that grains and refined sugar is OUT. I found this basic dessert online at “Everyday Paleo” but for my sugar fast, I made a couple of alterations:
1 can full-fat coconut milk
1 cup unsweetened baking chocolate (try Dagoba!) *
1/4 cup agave
1 teaspoon cinnamon
A splash of rum (optional) **
In a sauce pan, melt the chocolate into the coconut milk over medium low heat while stirring with a whisk. Add the cinnamon and the splash of rum. Pour the custard into small serving dishes and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Top with homemade whipped cream. If you do not want your kids to acquire a taste for liquor just yet, you can always pour half of the custard into serving dishes before you add the rum to the remaining half for grown ups! I am sure you can make this a million different ways so get creative and enjoy! Makes seven 1/4 cup servings – less if you serve in larger serving dishes.
*The original recipe called for 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips which would negate the need for agave. However, I am aiming at not eating refined sugar… thus the substitute. Try, experiment, enjoy!
** Also, you can try vanilla, almond extract or peppermint to mix things up.
