Dark Chocolate Fondue with Fresh Fruit Recipe

A great tasting chocolate sweetie that whips up in about 15 minutes. Yeah, you have time for that.


1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 12oz can evaporated milk, fat-free (*see below for vegan alternative to evaporated milk...)
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup sugar (or coconut palm sugar)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1/8 tsp vanilla bean powder)
1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup strawberries, whole
1 cup pineapple chunks, fresh
1 cup banana slices
In a medium saucepan, whisk the cornstarch into the evaporated milk. Place over low heat and stir in the cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cook, whisking constantly, until thoroughly combined and the liquid starts to thicken, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately with fresh fruit.
* Vegan alternative to evaporated milk: soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, hemp milk or a product called Dari-Free powder. Since you are looking for a substitute for evaporated milk, then using any of the milks listed above will make your recipe a little on the watery/weak side. You can use the above milks, but you have to also add a thickener to them like perhaps a cornstarch, potato starch or tapioca starch.

Dari-Free powder works well, and simply add extra to make the non-dairy milk thicker. Evaporated milk has 60% of its liquid removed, so you have to do the same with whatever substitute you use. With the dari-free powder, the recipe calls for a heaping tablespoon to 1 cup of water. Using  2 heaping tablespoons gets it pretty close to the consistency of evaporated milk. If you would use rice milk or soy milk, then you need to heat it some and add a tablespoon or more of cornstarch and stir to thicken till it reached the right consistency.
