I’m back with another delicious autumnal dessert! This Vegan Pear Dark Chocolate Sundae is a delicious, comforting dessert for this time of year and the perfect healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

Vegan Pear Dark Chocolate Sundae (GF)

You may have already noticed, but I’ve recently got really into having healthy sundaes for dessert (like this Fig Tahini Sundae).

I love having cooked fruit of some shape or form in my desserts at this time of year, but sometimes making a pie, pudding, or crumble is too much effort.  

I love the pairing of pear and dark chocolate, which I’ve previously used to make an almond pudding and a healthier crumble.

So I knew I just had to make a sundae with pear and chocolate. I just love the contrast of the soft, warm pears and the rich, decadent, (2-ingredient!) chocolate syrup, paired with the creamy coconut yogurt and crunchy roasted nuts.

I personally like to make this sundae with coconut yogurt as I love the contrast of the tangy flavour of yogurt with the sweet pears, but you could also use (dairy-free) vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

For the topping, I went with some chopped almonds, but you could use hazelnuts, or even rice puffs. Basically anything with a contrastingly crunchy texture should work!

Incidentally, this sundae is also gluten-free and you can make it naturally sweetened (if you make sure to find a naturally sweetened dark chocolate), but it certainly doesn’t taste like it!
