Serves 4


INGREDIENTS

1 cup organic coconut milk
1 tablespoon of ground Blue Bottle’s “Ethiopian Yirgacheffe” coffee
¼ cup raw agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 box (¾ pound) Mori Nu firm silken tofu (this dessert only works with this brand)
2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs

PREPARATION

  1. In a small saucepan over high heat, combine the coconut milk and coffee. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high and boil for 7 minutes, whisking often. Remove from heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine 3 tablespoons of the coffee-coconut milk mixture, the agave nectar, vanilla, cocoa powder, and salt and whisk to incorporate the cocoa powder. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat.
  3. Pour the mixture into in a blender, add the tofu, and blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl, add the cacao nibs, and stir well.
  4. Cover with plastic and refrigerate to set for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve chilled.
