Double chocolate = double the fun!

For the ‘cream’ we have used coconut yoghurt (coyo), however whipped coconut cream is also a great option if you do not have access to coyo. We are also working on our own recipe for homemade coconut yoghurt… Stay tuned!

We recommend serving with fresh organic berries and/or berry coulis. For quick and easy access to all our basic recipes (among many others) you can download our app! Link is on our website.
