If you look at the dessert recipes I’ve posted here, it’ll become obvious that I have a soft spot for chocolate. So today, I will share with you a recipe for steamed broccoli…
Today, I’m going to show you how I make a vegan chocolate ganache when I’m feeling a bit lazy. This recipe could not be any simpler and I usually have all ingredients (all 2 of them!) at home. Yet it always turns out great!
Studies show that eating a small amount of dark chocolate a few times a week can actually be beneficial to your health. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants which, as you know, help to protect your body against free radicals. It is also good for your brain as it increases the blood flow to the brain and heart, improving your cognitive function.
In addition, dark chocolate was found to have a positive impact on your mood. There is a scientific explanation to why eating dark chocolate makes you feel happier.
Chocolate contains a compound called phenylethylamine which initiates the release of endorphins and makes you feel happier. By the way, the same compound is created when you feel like you’re falling in love. Pretty cool, huh?
Don’t you just wanna lick the whisk?? Mmmm chocolate ♥
This chocolate ganache can be used as a glaze for desserts and a filling for cake. You can also dip strawberries in it. Yummy!
To keep this recipe healthy, I highly suggest to use dairy- and sugar-free dark chocolate chips. Check out another variation of vegan chocolate ganache HERE.
- 1 cup almond milk
- 250 gr dark chocolate chips
- In a small pot, bring almond milk to a boil. Remove from heat.
- Stir in chocolate chips and whisk vigorously until the chips melt.
- Let cool to room temperature.
- Pour ganache into a mixing bow and whisk with an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes until it becomes lighter and thicker.
- Chill in refrigerator for an hour until ganache thickens.
