  • 100 g cherries, pitted, halved
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • a splash of water
  • 250 g coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or extract
  • 100 g good quality vegan chocolate
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao
  • 1-2 tsp espresso powder


  1. Add the cherries to a saucepan with the maple syrup and water, then cook on a medium heat for a few minutes until the cherries have softened a little. Set aside.

  2. Break up the chocolate and add to a large bowl.

  3. Heat the coconut cream, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a saucepan until just before boiling, stirring constantly.

  4. Pour the mix over the chocolate and leave for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to melt.

  5. Fold in the raw cacao and espresso powder and stir gently so that everything is combined, then fold in the cherries.

  6. Spoon the mix into glasses or espresso cups, then pop in the fridge to firm up – around 4 hours or overnight.
