Vegan Dark Chocolate Ganache

Chocolate Ganache was one of the first recipes I’ve shared on the blog. And it’s about time that I give you guys a vegan version! So if you’re looking for a vegan chocolate ganache recipe or a dairy free chocolate ganache recipe, today is the day. Not only is this a vegan ganache, but if you just love dark chocolate it’s absolutely delicious!

This Dark Chocolate Ganache can be used in so many different recipes. You can top ice cream with it, add it to frostings, to glazes, on top of cakes, drizzle it on top of tarts and so much more. It’s great to have on hand in the fridge for anything you want. And this simple vegan chocolate ganache recipe only has 2 ingredients – dark chocolate and coconut milk. My favorite kid of coconut milk, and what we use at the bakery is So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla. That’s what I use in all my recipes. I love it because it’s creamy and it mimics milk very well.

Why Organic

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
