"Just to put my 2c worth in - I often use passionfruit puree direct onto milk chocolate. Raspberry is good straight onto dark. I use Boiron fruit purees."

"I have often thought to give that a try, what fruit concentrates do you use, what gives a good result. I have easy access to apricot and mango, I think apricot might be good."

"You can use coconut milk in place of cream to make ganache.  Infuse it with herbs, or chilies or whatever you want. This makes a good ganache but it does have a coconut flavor."

"Goat's milk contains essentially the same percentage of lactose as cow's milk - so is really only useful to people who are cow's milk protein allergic - not lactose intolerant.  "

"Gita; You said you were looking for a creamy center.  Have you actually "tasted" goat's milk?  It's consumed world wide more than cow's milk and tastes just fine.   Coconut oil will not get you a creamy center…"

"I use fruit purees, but they have to be reduced. I use cream and/or butter so I don't have many suggestions for you. I know of some folks who use coconut oil or even vegetable oil, but I have no recipe. Sorry."
