Black Sapote Trifle Recipes

If you’ve never tried a black sapote, you’re missing out. A relative of the persimmon fruit, they are also known as chocolate pudding fruit, and don’t disappoint! They have four times as much vitamin C than an orange – great immune boosters when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.



For the base layer:

  • 5 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • 5 tablespoons buckwheat

For the chocolate cream layer

  • 1 black spapote (chocolate fruit)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalaya sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated stevia
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream

For the Raspberry Chia Jam:

  • 1 cup raspberries (or berries of choice)
  • 3 tablespoon chia seeds


  • Coconut yoghurt
  • Strawberries
  • Additional nibs and buckwheat


  1. Remove the flesh from the ripe black sapote, discarding the seeds, and add to a blender.
  2. Place all the remaining chocolate layer ingredients into the blender and process until smooth.
  3. Pour the chocolate mix into a jar and refrigerate for 30 minutes to thicken.
  4. Meanwhile, make the chia jam by mashing the raspberries with a fork and mixing in the chia seeds.
  5. In the bottom of a glass jar, add buckwheat and nibs, a thick layer of chia jam and a layer of chocolate cream.
  6. Top with coconut yoghurt, strawberries, more nibs and buckwheat, and enjoy immediately for brekkie or dessert!
