There are many different kinds of love.

I love my husband

I love my kids.

I love my slippers.

I love chocolate.

Obviously, not all kinds of love are the same {I love my family more than chocolate, I promise}…but they’re all worthy of celebrating {shoutout to fluffy slippers everywhere}! My favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is that it’s about showing the people in your life how much you love them! I don’t know about you, but the way to my heart is through my stomach…and chocolate is most definitely my love language {can I get an amen}! This Vegan Chocolate Fondue is the perfect recipe to make to show that special someone in your life just how much you care

I am in love with this recipe for like a million reasons! But here are the top 3:

#1) It’s healthier than your average fondue! This recipe is dairy-free and can easily be made paleo without refined sugar!

#2) It’s E-A-S-Y! Did you ever think you could make a rich, creamy, vegan fondue recipe in 5 minutes FLAT!? Well it’s true you can. All because….

#3) This Vegan Chocolate Fondue is made in the Vitamix! I don’t have to tell you that I make almost everything in my Vitamix. I have made smoothies, muffins, pancakes, brownies, even yeasted bread…and now, I bring you FONDUE!

This Vegan Chocolate Fondue truly is a breeze to make. Simply toss most of the ingredients in the Vitamix and blend for 1 minute. This will heat up the wet ingredients just in time to add the chocolate and blend for 4 more minutes. As the mixture continues to heat up, the chocolate will melt and the mixture will become velvety smooth! Once your fondue has reached a creamy consistency, add a splash of vanilla, pulse and serve!

There are virtually endless possibilities of what you can dip in this Vegan Chocolate Fondue! Fresh fruit, marshmallows, brownies, pretzels, nuts {salted cashews…I die}, angel food cake, potato chips…seriously let your imagination {and taste buds} run wild!

Notes on Substitutions in this Vegan Chocolate Fondue

As always I recommend making the recipe exactly as written for the best results, however here are a few thoughts on potential substitutions.

Coconut Cream: I do not recommend substituting anything for the coconut cream {especially not low-fat coconut milk}! If you’ve ever opened a can of coconut cream then you know that half of the mixture is solid and the other half is liquid. You need that consistency to create a super creamy fondue. The only other potential substitution could be a dairy-free half-and-half or heavy whipping cream {not vegan if you use dairy}!

Granulated Sugar: There’s a little more substitution wiggle room with your sweetener! You can use any granulated sugar {I have tried raw organic sugar and coconut sugar with great results}, maple syrup, or honey {not vegan}. The best results are achieved using granulated sugar!

Chocolate Chips: Use any chopped chocolate or chip variety of your liking. My absolute favorites are Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate chips. However, if you need an allergy-friendly chocolate try Enjoy Life. You can also use unsweetened baking chocolate {100% cocoa} in place of the chocolate chips, but you will need to increase the amount of sugar used {unless you like intense dark chocolate}! Most varieties of milk chocolate are not vegan, but you absolutely can use it if you don’t need to stick to a vegan diet.
