It’s always great to see more vegan-friendly products hitting the market, especially when they feature chocolate! Choconette launched at Vegan Life Live last month and was a hit with those who attended. We were sad we couldn’t make the event, but were kindly sent some samples of this new range to try for ourselves at home.
Choconette is the first organic and oil-free vegan chocolate spread you make yourself. There are off-the-shelf alternatives on the market, but many contain palm oil, an ingredient many ethical consumers have an issue with. It is made using a milk substitute of your choice, and can be stored in the fridge for up to 10 days. As we love oat milk we felt its creamy consistency would work well with the chocolate mix.
Made from organic almonds, hazelnuts and Fairtrade cocoa, Choconette can be enjoyed on toast, pancakes or crumpets. It could also be used as an ingredient in baking or added to a smoothie to give it a rich flavour.It is easy to make using either a microwave or a pan. You simply heat 4 to 5 tablespoons of the milk-substitute on a cooker top or in a microwave, then stir in the whole packet of Choconette. You can even get the kids involved in making up a batch. The mixture can be used warm or cold. One serving suggestion we’ve seen is with warm churros as a dipping sauce. Delicious! I personally preferred the texture, which was similar to mousse, after it was refrigerated.Available in a range of options, including a low glycemic version and banana flavour, we enjoyed trying different ways of using the spread. Rather than making the whole batch, especially if you live on your own, amounts can be adjusted accordingly. If you happen to have a sweet tooth – like us – it might not last the 10 days, to be fair! There is a special offer at the moment with free shipping when you purchase 3 or more boxes of Choconette. You can browse the range here.
