Chocolate Coconut Silk

I thought that might get your attention! Here is one of my favorite recipes from my new book – Chocolate Coconut Silk. If you are unable to find the unsweetened coconut milk (I used So Delicious brand – 45 calories per cup) you can use fat free milk, or soy milk or nut milk.

Chocolate Coconut Silk – Makes four 1/2 cup servings
I adore pudding. This is so creamy and chocolatey and easy to make –
hope you’ll love it too.

1⁄4 cup 21.5 g unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1⁄4 cup 32 g cornstarch
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
2 cups 473 ml unsweetened coconut milk,
1⁄3 cup to 1/2 cup agave nectar (depending on how sweet you like your desserts)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

In a 1-quart saucepan, combine the cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Add just
enough of the coconut milk to make a smooth paste. Gradually stir in the
agave and the remaining coconut milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring
constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir
in the vanilla extract. Pour into 4 serving dishes and cool.
