Chocolate hazelnut tapioca (Dairy Free)

20140529-055912.jpg

This dessert is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, has no added sugar and no added fat and I made it specially for Good Earth

It is amazingly decadent although i used completely natural ingredients… And what i especially liked about is the texture. You get the hazelnut flavor from the delicious milk but the added ground nuts give it a hint of a bite, a bit of a surprise for those who eat tapioca often 🙂

You will need:

100g tapioca
1 liter Alpro Hazelnut Milk
50g ground almonds
6 while hazelnuts to decorate
1/4 orange, you just need the grated peel
1 small dairy free chocolate
Add sugar, honey or sweetener of your choice, i did not add any in ours and it was sweet enough for us
Some mint leaves to decorate

In a saucepan, pour the hazelnut milk, add the ground hazelnuts and leave them in the fridge for at least an hour to soak. You may wish to leave them overnight. Add the tapioca and start to cook on low heat.

When it starts to thicken add the grated orange peel. Keep stirring and finally add the dairy free chocolate and stir until it melts.
