Vanilla ice cream with a gooey fudgy chocolate sauce is deliciously iconic – sadly it’s usually full of dairy fat and laden with refined sugar – happily not any more! It’s super simple to whip up a vegan alternative that tastes amazing!

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste



Cooking Time



  • 6 ounces best quality dark fair trade chocolate – chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite nut butter (depending on the amount of “nutty” flavor you like)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place all the ingredients in a pan and heat on a low heat until smooth – do not allow to boil!
  2. When smooth use immediately or pour into a glass airtight container and store in the fridge. The sauce will become a solid so allow to come to room temperature before serving or VERY slowly reheat without boiling.
