BLUEBERRY CHOCOLATE POT

for 4

Ingredients:  

  • 225gms. fresh blueberries  (frozen would be OK too)
  • 400ml. tin of coconut milk (refrigerate overnight)
  • 100gms. best quality dark vegan chocolate
  • 50gms. sugar (I used golden caster)
  • 12gms. arrowroot powder
  • 70ml. non-dairy milk
  • 2tbs. sugar
  • juice 1/2 lemon

Method:

  • *In advance: chill tin of coconut milk in refrigerator overnight.
  • Wash blueberries and pat dry with kitchen towel.
  • Break chocolate into chunks and place in a bowl that can sit over a saucepan in order to melt the chocolate. ( Save a square to grate as a garnish)
  • Open tin of coconut milk and put the thickest, creamiest 200ml. in a deep sided bowl and return to the refrigerator.
  • Put the remaining 200ml. coconut milk in a medium saucepan.
  • In a bowl, mix arrowroot powder with 70ml. non dairy milk – making sure there are no lumps.
  • Place chocolate over a saucepan of gently boiling water and allow chocolate to melt.
  • Make sure base of bowl is not touching the water in the saucepan.  (see photos)
  • Remove chilled 200ml. coconut milk from refrigerator and whip with a whisk (electric or hand) until light and soft.

Returning to the coconut milk in the saucepan:

  • Heat the coconut milk gently and then add arrowroot/milk liquid to pan.
  • Stir constantly.
  • It will thicken quickly….don’t panic!
  • Cook gently for 2-3 mins. Stir constantly.
  • Add melted chocolate to coconut milk/arrowroot mix and stir in.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Whisk chocolate/arrowroot mix until smooth.

Wasting no time:

  • Fold chocolate mix into whipped coconut cream.
  • Create a marbled effect.
  • Fold in 150gms. blueberries.
  • Spoon mix into four individual glasses and chill in refrigerator.
  • Take remaining 75gms. blueberries and place in a small saucepan with 2 tbs. sugar and juice 1/2 lemon.
  • Allow to boil for 5 mins. to form a quick jam.

When the jam is cool, spoon a little on top of the chocolate pots and garnish with a little grated chocolate.
