Mega Rich Espresso Pots


Serves 4

  • For the pots:
  • 100ml Alpro Almond Original drink
  • ½ tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 200g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 300g soft brown sugar
  • 1 shot of espresso
  • 100ml melted plant-based spread (or melted coconut oil)
  • 4 squares of plant-based dark chocolate
  • For the cream topping (optional):
  • 200g Alpro Soya Single plant-based alternative to cream


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C and gather 4 large or 6 small ramekins.

  • Step 2

    To start, mix together the Alpro Almond Original drink and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl until smooth. Leave to one side for at least 30 minutes to thicken.

  • Step 3

    Once the mixture has thickened, make the batter. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cacao powder and brown sugar until there are no lumps. Add the espresso shot, melted plant-based spread and previously prepared Alpro Almond Original mixture and stir again until a smooth batter forms.

  • Step 4

    To assemble the pots, divide the mixture between 4-6 ramekins (half fill the ramekins) and add a square of plant-based chocolate to the ramekin, on top of the mix, then add the remaining mixture to each ramekin and cook for 20-25 minutes until cooked on the outside but gooey in the middle.

  • Step 5

    Once the pots have been cooked, remove from the oven and serve with Alpro Soya Single plant-based alternative to cream.
