Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips, dark
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together coconut cream, milk, sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch.
  • Heat over medium heat, stirring regularly, until mixture begins to thicken.
  • Remove from heat and stir in chocolate chips, vanilla, and peppermint extract. Whisk until very smooth.
  • Chill in the refrigerator until completely cooled (several hours or overnight).
  • Mixture will be very thick when chilled. Pour mixture into a large bowl and whip with hand mixer about 1 minute, or until mixture loosens and gets a little fluffy.
  • Chill and serve when ready!
  • If you can't find a can of unsweetened coconut cream, you can use two cans of unsweetened full-fat coconut milk (place in the refrigerator for a few hours). Remove thick white cream from the top of the can and save the thin, clear liquid for another use (great in smoothies or for cooking rice or curries). The cream from two cans of full-fat coconut milk = 1 full can of coconut cream.
  • For a stronger peppermint flavor, you can substitute 1 small drop of peppermint essential oil for the peppermint extract. Know that the flavor will be stronger.
