  • 1 cup coconut milk see Notes
  • 2 ounces soft dates
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate chopped fine
  • tiny pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Warm the coconut milk in a saucepan (just to bathwater temperature).
  • Turn the heat off and add the dates into the milk.
  • Let soak for 10 minutes.
  • Blend the milk with the dates in a high speed blender until smooth (there shouldn't be any visible pieces).
  • Add the date milk back to the saucepan and turn the heat on to medium high.
  • Whisk in the chopped chocolate until smooth and well combined. This takes a few minutes, as the chocolate has to melt.
  • Once smooth and thick, you can use it immediately or refrigerate for later. It thickens up even more when refrigerated!
