Serves 4.


  • 400ml creamy coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • About 20 soft dried dates
  • A few drops of vanilla extract
  • 4 small ramekins or glasses to serve


  1. Refrigerate the can of coconut milk for a few hours to solidify and separate. Carefully turn it upside down, open and discard the transparent liquid however you prefer to. I usually use it in a smoothie. I usually keep a can of coconut milk in my fridge, just in case I need one cold quickly.
  2. Pit and halve the dates. If they are not soft, place them for a few minutes in warm water until they start to soften, then drain and chop. Place them in a tall jug, add 2 tablespoons of coconut milk and blend with a stick blender on high.
  3. Strain the paste, then add the remaining coconut milk and cocoa powder and blend together until smooth, then finally add the vanilla (or your preferred flavouring).
  4. Mix the mixture in a blender or food processor to trap the air inside the paste and make it more fluffy and mousse-like.
  5. Divide the mixture between the four ramekins and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Enjoy!
