Ganache is a French term referring to a smooth mixture of chocolate and cream. It is commonly used as a glaze, filling, or frosting. Typically ganache is made with warm heavy cream over chopped chocolate, so I used warm coconut milk over dairy free chocolate chips and added a taste of coffee. This ganache goes perfect with my Moist and Fluffy Chocolate Cupcakes, Donuts, or as sweet filling in my Dairy Free Truffles — Enjoy!

  • 1 C Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips or chocolate chips of choice
  • 1/2 C Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla


  • Place chocolate chips and vanilla in a medium sized bowl.
  • Heat the coconut milk over medium heat until it reaches a gentle boil.
  • Pour the warm creamer over the chocolate and swirl the coconut cream to make sure all the chips are covered. Cover and leave undisturbed for 5 minutes to trap the heat. 
  • Remove lid and whisk until chocolate is completely smooth.  If for some reason your chocolate doesn't completely melt, heat for 15 seconds in the microwave and stir until smooth. Repeat as needed but not heat more than 15 seconds at a time or your chocolate will harden!
  • Dip donuts, tops of cupcakes, etc... into the ganache. Ganache will slightly harden into a smooth satin as it cools.

    Do not use the water that is in the bottom of the coconut cream! Fantastic flavor but not very dark in color.
