120ml coconut cream- whipped
2 egg yolks
80g 70% callebeut chocolate, melted
3 whipped egg whites
300g sapote puree

Warm almond milk and coconut cream in a med saucepan.
In a bowl, whisk yolk and stevia until fluffy.
Pour warm almond and coconut milk mix over egg mix. Combine and return to saucepan. Do not boil as egg will curdle. Cook at a med heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon or resembles an anglaise. Remove from the heat and add dissolved gelatine sheet (remove from water) to egg mix. Combine.
Strain egg mix through a fine sieve and fold through melted chocolate.
