Italian Chestnut Cream Dessert

This chocolate chestnut dessert is simple to make - simple cook in 1 pan over a low heat - yet still beautifully rich and indulgent. It is made with almond milk, which not only enhances the subtle nuttiness of the chestnut flour, but also makes this dessert completely diary-free.

This recipe was created by our friends at A.L.P.A


Ingredients for the dessert

  • 300 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 30g chestnut flour
  • 20g bitter cocoa powder
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp of rum (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Dairy-free cream

How to make the dessert

  1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it comes to the boil.
  2. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, pour in the sugar, add the sieved chestnut flour and cocoa and the pinch of salt. Stir with a hand whisk.
  3. Pour the hot milk over the powder, add the liqueur (optional) and the vanilla extract, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Place the saucepan with the mixture over a low heat and leave to thicken, stirring continuously (approx. 5 min).
  5. Pour the still hot cream into glasses and add some whipped dairy-free cream and a sprinkling of bitter cocoa.
