This is literally the best chocolate sauce I have ever had.  It’s actually good for you!  It’s keto, low-FODMAP, Paleo and dairy-free!



1 can (about 13 ounces) full fat coconut milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt (Kosher or a good fleur de sel is best)

1/2 cup raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)

1/2 cup + two tablespoons sweetener (I use 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener and 1/4 cup stevia)*

Add-in options below in the notes


Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan, over low heat.

Keep whisking every few seconds while it heats.

Cook just until it starts to boil slighty, then remove from heat.

Try to refrain from consuming the entire pot all by yourself in one sitting.


*I like to use this blend because the erythritol in this product can cause some digestive upset and it works great with stevia.  If you do okay with erythritol or another sweetener, have at it!

The sauce tends to get just a bit thicker as it cools.

Add-in options:

Substitute the vanilla extract for another flavor, such as almond, mint or orange.

Add a pinch of cinnamon (my favorite), masala, curry or black pepper.

Or just go nuts and add a tablespoon of peanut butter.  It will be thick, though, so if you want it to stay ‘saucey’, you need to add a little bit more coconut milk.  Or don’t, and have yourself the best pudding ever!!!  Seriously, try this.  It’s insane.
