  • 3 tablespoons Arrowroot powder
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 1/4 cup pure unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • Place Arrowroot powder in a small bowl with 1/2 cup coconut milk and whisk together until fully blended. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, stir together the rest of the coconut milk with the maple syrup or nectar, cocoa powder until well mixed.
  • Heat the mixture to boiling, stirring with a whisk to dissolve the cocoa and blend everything together.
  • Continue to whisk as cocoa powder takes time and doesn’t dissolve quickly.
  • As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, quickly stir in arrowroot mixture and whisk.
  • When the mixture begins to thicken (within moments), turn off the heat and add the vanilla, sea salt and cinnamon
  • Pour into ramekins, individual bowls or parfait glasses.
