Dairy free alternative for ganache

Hi can anyone suggest a suitable alternative to ganache that is dairy free but still gives the smooth base for icing?
Thanks 😉


Hello Therese1

There are several dairy free ganache recipes in google, here is one which might be helpful http://www.icedgembakes.co.uk/gluten-free-and-dairy-free-baking-recipes/chocolate-ganache/.
Most dark chocolate over 56% cocoa content is dairy free but you can get non dairy chocolate in the special foods aisle of most large supermarkets. Hope this helps.


Excellent link thank you! Duh! I hadn’t thought to use soya milk rather than cream….so obvious now!!
