Paleo Chocolate Sauce

Brownie delights are one of my favorite desserts. I can get them locally at Governor’s restaurant, but it will have far more sugar than any one person should ever have at one sitting. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve allowed myself one a year from there, because these desserts are amazing. But for home, I wanted a version that contained less sweetener.

This chocolate sauce is the one I use for my homemade brownie desserts, and it is delicious. I use honey rather than refined sugar, and am actually working a little at a time to see how far I can cut back on the amount of honey I can use before it gets to a point where the sauce is no longer sweet enough.

This chocolate sauce is great for many desserts, and for dipping fruit into.

Ingredients

1 cup coconut milk, canned, refrigerated. Mix the cream into the liquid before measuring.

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup of raw, unfiltered wildflower honey

  1. Pour the milk and honey into a saucepan and stir to combine.
  2. Add the cocoa powder while warming, and stir often until warmed.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon.
  4. Pour into small canning jars cool.
  5. Cover and store in the refrigerator.

I’m not sure exactly how long this sauce will last, because I use it over the course of the week.

Tips

  • Even though it costs more, I use organic ingredients for this sauce. Since I don’t make it often, it’s not like I’m paying all out doors to make it frequently.
  • The taste of the organic ingredients is far superior to other options. If you’ve never had organic cinnamon, I do suggest you try it. Delicious!
  • Store coupons can help to bring the cost down some, as can gift cards.
  • I have a variety of small canning jars, lids, and rings that I reuse over and over again. If you’re not processing the foods, you can reuse the lids as often as you like.
  • I can sometimes save money by buying the coconut milk in bulk through Amazon.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve over brownies.
  • Dip fruits such as grapes, strawberries, apple slices, and banana chunks into the sauce.
  • Serve over Paleo ice cream.

Enjoy your desserts!

  1. Peppermint Coconut Cream | Frugal Recipes - Saturday, January 6, 2018

    […] The creams I am making, such as this one and the vanilla coconut cream, are far healthier for me than dairy-based creams. I’m thankful to have them for topping my fruit and desserts. They also goes well with the chocolate sauce I like. […]
