I get it now, thanks! Never even thought about agar, but that might be yet another option for folks who want to avoid gelatin. Can they last throughout the week? You'll have to take that up with Larry when you find him. Someone told me they were healthy, I dumped some in my overnight oats, and they made oatmeal pudding by the next morning!

I am confused about the gelatin, though. Do you discard the water then? Could I use powdered Knox gelatin?
If so, how would I do that? Hi Yolanda…I soaked the sheets of gelatin, discarded the water, and put the softened gelatin sheets into the warm coconut milk and chocolate. Can you substitute the gelatin with something else? Hi Belinda…you could try making something like a mousse which involves using whipped egg whites to firm it up I was making this for someone who cannot eat eggs, hence my use of the gelatin as a thickener.
You could leave out the ancho chili powder and cinnamon for a similar, very dense effect to this dessert. Hope that gives you some options. Try chia seeds in place of gelatin. They create a thick pudding like consistency when soaked in liquid.
I have a chia seed variation of this: Sorry to hear how it turned out Allie. Could you do this without gelatine or use a gelatine substitute?? It says on the label that one tablespoon gels one pint of liquid. So, do I just skip step 1 and pour the one tablespoon of gelatin over the coconut milk?
And before or after I heat it? Hmmmm I would assume so yes…one tablespoon per pint which is 2 cups. I would gently heat the coconut milk to allow the chocolate to melt.
Then add the gelatin and stir until it dissolves. I checked on their website and they seem to include a variety of preparations.
Best thing about Agar, just throw it in with everything else bring to a boil and your done. It also sets quickly and without refrigeration..
One thing to note you only need a little, eg 1. Never even thought about agar, but that might be yet another option for folks who want to avoid gelatin. Thanks for writing in! Thank you for this recipe!
Just found your website: Does this set up enough that I could put it into a pie shell and make like a chocolate cream pie with it?? I just found this recipe and made it the same day! I have another version that uses chia seeds instead of gelatin and is vegetarian: I made my version of this a couple of days ago.
I am reacting to coconut milk, so I boiled almond milk with agar agar powder. After being in the fridge overnight it set up well, and I have been enjoying it as a lovely dessert — light, and not too sweet. I made this last night for some friends and it was a huge hit. I made it the night and let it set in the refrigerator. I am baffled by all the comments complaining about gelatin not being vegetarian.
How on earth do you eat vegetarian AND paleo and not starve? Okay, after trying this a few times I think I have a respectable agar agar substitute. Turn the heat to medium and stir the agar agar in gently for a few seconds. Bring the mixture to a boil, and stir it every seconds. Watch it VERY carefully, as the mixture can boil over in a second. I forgot to watch it like a hawk, and had a sticky mess to clean up. Boil the coconut milk for one to two minutes, or until the agar agar is completely dissolved.
I check if it is dissolved by dipping my spatula in and seeing if there are any agar agar specks in the milk while it runs off the spatula.
Remove if from the heat and stir in the chopped dark chocolate until it melts. Add the vanilla extract. Pour into your desired glasses or cups and chill for at least 30 minutes or until set. Agar agar also sets at room temperature, but takes longer. Because coconut milk needs refrigeration I choose to put them in the fridge to set. If you do, just use the same weight of agar agar 1 gram.
You will probably need to cook it a little longer to ensure it is all dissolved. I just made this gorgeous sounding recipe and made 4 neat serves. Beautiful consistency, thanks for sharing this recipe!
Yes, the dark chocolate I used was sweetened. Using unsweetened chocolate would make the result pretty bitter. Instead of melting down a bar? Otherwise I suspect you may just end up with chocolate flavoured milk jelly! Oh my goodness, such a lovely simple recipe, yet so many insanely stupid questions following it!
Why should Steph have to read it for you? I would be so sick of answering these silly questions from lazy people if I were Steph. Well done on the recipe post, shame about the ignorant comments. I made this over the weekend and it tasted delicious, however it was lumpy and not edible.
