So simple to make and wonderful that it’s almost criminal, this chocolate pots de créme recipe is an easy and impressive dessert that you make in your blender!

It’s perfect for dinner parties if you make it in the morning or the evening before. Be sure to use very hot coffeeor the mixture won’t set.

It’s rich, so a small serving goes a long way. I make mine with cardamom, but you can use other spices or extracts. 

This chocolate dessert recipe has HUGE potential for variations! For a chocolate mint version, try adding a few drops of peppermint essential oil.

“OMG!!! Every tester loved this chocolate dessert. One had it for breakfast, gave it a ‘heavenly 10’. I don’t eat eggs but tried it, YUM! I’ll have to find a good egg replacer for myself. Smooth chocolaty texture. The espresso really gave this a great flavor with the (dark) semi sweet chocolate chips.”

“This is soooooo good! All 3 of us, my husband, 3-year-old daughter, and I all enjoyed it. It has a strong mocha taste with just a hint of cardamom (though my coffee could have been a little stronger than normal). This is really easy to make and sets into something that’s between chocolate mousse and chocolate ganache. My husband compared it to truffle filling!”


Cardamom is native to the evergreen forests of India. This spice is commonly used in Indian cuisine, but has also made its way into Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for digestive problems, mouth ulcers, and even depression. Some of the health benefits of this peppery, citrusy spice are now being celebrated so it’s worth taking a closer look at to consider adding to your dishes.

1. Digestion – Cardamom is related to ginger and can be used in much the same way to counteract digestive problems. Use it to combat nausea, acidity, bloating, gas, heartburn, loss of appetite, constipation, and much more.

2. Halitosis – In India they chew cardamom after meals or whenever they need to freshen their breath.

3. Diuretic – Part of the reason cardamom is such a good detoxifier is thanks to the diuretic properties. It helps clean out the urinary tract, bladder, and kidneys, removing waste, salt, excess water, toxins, and combating infections too.

4. Depression – The science behind the antidepressant qualities of cardamom hasn’t been studied yet, but Ayurvedic medicine swears by the tea as a means to fight depression.

  1. Egg replacer use avocado, banana, arrowroot powder or finely ground psyllium husk ? Also, I think a sprinkle of fresh ground star anise would be lovely with the cardamom.

    1. Thanks Jen! We had lots of people who don’t eat eggs than want to try this recipe. We will have to test this for the exact amounts! 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!

  2. I think I’d like to use one of my three favorite flavors to mix with chocolate: cinnamon, coconut or cherry. I’d call it my Triple C Creme!

    I’ve made pot de creme before but on the stove. This would be sooo much easier!
    I’d probably go with the peppermint essential oil since mint is my favorite!

  4. This looks so delicious and nutritious!! Can’t wait to try it when I get home from work tonight!! Thanks for the great opportunity, girls! Xo
