Smart Sweet: Cacao Chocolate Sauce

In the Valentine’s Day episode of The Joe Show (you can watch it live tomorrow  so be on the look out for our newsletter), juiceologist Brandi Kowalski shows us how to make our very own vegan chocolate sauce. It’s simple, so tasty, and can be added to homemade almond milk, banana ice cream, or anything else that just tastes delicious with chocolate (that’s everything in my eyes).


  • 1/2 cup (45 g) cacao powder
  • 1 cup (8 oz/250 ml) maple syrup (or agave)
  • 1 tbsp coconut butter
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Add all ingredients to blender.
  2.  Blend until completely smooth, about 45 – 60 seconds
  3. Pour into dish.
  4. Store in the fridge and add to your favorite sweet recipes!
