Chocolate Lovers unite! If you are looking for an easy, decadent yet dairy-free, way to indulge your chocolate addiction, you’ve gotta check out this Chocolate Soup!
Many moons ago, when my daughter and I used to visit my sister in New York, she would always take us to her favorite bakery in brooklyn. At this bakery, our standing order was a slice of their one-of-a-kind pistachio cake and an iced or hot coffee. On one of our trips there, I noticed another diner have a bowl of what looked like chocolate soup being placed in front of her. Y’all – a WHOLE BOWL of C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E. soup!
For this chocolate
addict lover, ALL that spoonable chocolate goodness had me swooning!
When I inquired about it, I was crestfallen to learn that it was chock full of dairy. Being as lactose intolerant as I am, I felt it would behoove me to refrain from it (duh -right?!). Of course, that didn’t stop me from dreaming about that chocolate soup. Over the years, I’ve tried making my own version of it, one of which I even shared on here. But, I always ended up relying on heavy cream and cornstarch to give it that thick, creamy, consistency – and that was one chocolate soup I couldn’t indulge in often. And, when I did, I had to stop after a few spoonfuls.
Then recently I came across an article in which someone had used egg yolks to thicken chocolate soup. Now, heavy cream was still one of the listed ingredients, and the egg yolks used were to reduce the amount of cornstarch used, but it got me thinking.
What if I used one of my favorite dairy substitutes: Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk + egg yolks + arrowroot powder to come up with a healthier, thicker, version that:
1) didn’t leave me with all the side effects of dairy consumption, and
2) one that wouldn’t leave me weighed down.
Sometimes, making healthy choices is hard, but feeling healthier doesn’t have to be – right?! I’ve tried to take a “Less Dairy-More Plants” stance, by stocking up on Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk and Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative at my local Walmart store. I find it hard to be 100% dairy free (like when there’s a slice of cheesecake staring me down at a friend’s house) but Silk fights the notion that “extreme” is the only path to being healthier as small victories are still victories!
Looking for more ways how you, too, can take a “Less Dairy-More Plants” stance with Silk? Then, check out Silk’s social hub as well as their Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Youtube channels. Then head on over to Walmart to stock up on your favorite Silk products!
Also, if you are using ibotta, here’s an offer you cannot miss!
Getting back to this Dairy Free Chocolate Soup, as I mentioned before, it’s made of: Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk + egg yolk + arrowroot powder and it also has some vanilla extract for flavor AND smell! I broke up a good quality, semi sweet baking chocolate bar and used the chunks in this soup too. But, feel free to use milk chocolate or bittersweet chocolate or white chocolate, if you prefer to do so. Hey, in fact, you could use all three and swirl them around for a tri-chocolate soup! Oooh!
This chocolate soup is good at room temperature as it’s just too runny warm. Also, when it’s warm, the whipped cream kinda melts right into it. But, if you get a chance to chill this soup for about an hour, it is definitely better than “good”. In my daughter’s words, this Chocolate Soup served chilled is “darn decadent”!
Happy Monday Y’all – nothing like some dairy free chocolate soup to chase the monday morning chill (it’s in the 40s here in not-so-HOTlanta) away – right?! 🙂
