Course Chocolate, Dessert
Cuisine French
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 8 servings


  • 9 oz dairy-free chocolate see note below
  • cup canned full-fat coconut milk
  • cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Things to Dip:

  • bananas
  • strawberries
  • mini GF crispy rice treats
  • marshmallows vegan if needed
  • GF pretzels


Microwave Method:

  • Place the chocolate and liquids (besides vanilla) in a bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth and melted.
  • Adjust consistency with more liquid if needed. Add vanilla and stir to incorporate. Enjoy!

Stovetop Method:

  • In saucepan, combine the chocolate, coconut milk, almond milk and vanilla. Heat on low, stirring often, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Keep the heat on low the entire time.
  • If needed, stir in a little more almond or coconut milk for a thinner consistency. Transfer the fondue to a fondue pot or small slow cooker for serving.
  • Serve with treats/dippers of choice. Enjoy!


To make this dairy-free fondue you’ll need to select dairy-free chocolate. I use Guittard semi-sweet, Nestle Simply Delicious or Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips for this recipe.
Stirring every 30 seconds will also ensure you get glossy, smooth chocolate fondue. At first it will seem like your stirring isn’t doing anything – but it will get there! 
Tip: You may need to add a touch more liquid to get just the right consistency. If the fondue is too runny simply add more chocolate and continue melting.
