DIY Ice Cream Sundaes
  • 1 pint Coconut Bliss Madagascan Vanilla Bean or Dark Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup vegan ganache, recipe follows
  • 1/4 cup vegan caramel sauce recipe follows
  • 1 batch coconut whipped cream, recipe follows
Vegan Chocolate Ganache
Vegan Caramel Sauce
  • 1 cup vegan granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water, or just enough to cover the sugar completely
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
Coconut Whipped Cream
Additional Toppings
  1. Start by making the chocolate ganache. In a small pan, heat the creamer to a scald (just before boiling point). Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl. Once creamer is ready, pour over the chocolate chips and cover for 3-5 minutes. Remove cover and stir together with a spatula until the chocolate and cream come together to create a homogeneous thick sauce. Be careful not to over mix.

  2. While your chocolate ganache cools, make your caramel sauce. Place the sugar and water in a very clean medium-sized pot set over high heat and bring to a boil. Do not stir. Agitating the sugar will cause crystallization. Continue boiling for about 10 minutes until the sugar has melted and begins to turn a rich golden brown. Immediately remove from heat and slowly add coconut milk while whisking. 

    Whisk until combined. If the sugar starts to clump together, return the caramel sauce to a low heat while continuing to stir.

  3. Pour caramel through a sieve into a jar and allow to cool to room temperature. The caramel will thicken as it cools.

  4. Let the ganache and caramel sauce cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours before serving your ice cream sundaes.

  5. When the ganache and caramel sauce have cooled, make the coconut whipped cream. Skim off the solid top half of chilled coconut milk. Make sure your coconut milk has separated, otherwise you will not get the right consistency. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and whip together with a handheld mixer.

  6. To assemble, divide Coconut Bliss Frozen Dessert between 4 bowls. Add chocolate ganache, caramel sauce, coconut whipped cream, and toppings of choice. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Both the caramel sauce and chocolate ganache recipes make more than you'll need. Caramel sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. To use it, gently warm the sauce in hot water or a microwave. 

Chocolate ganache can stay at room temperature for up to 2 days or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Similarly, to warm, gently reheat the ganache in hot water or a microwave.
