Yesterday while reading some of my favorite blogs I came across a delightful recipe for a hot chocolate from Kimi at The Nourishing Gourmet. As soon as I read the recipe I knew that is would taste delicious with my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I didn’t have all the ingredients that Kimi used so I had to modify it a lot. I made this while the rain was pouring down and my girls were contentedly making friendship bracelets in our dining hall. A perfect day for a hot drink!
Creamy Coconut Hot Cocoa
1 Can Whole Fat Coconut Milk
3 Cups Water
3 TBS Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cup Honey
1 tsp Vanilla
Bring the coconut milk and water to a low boil. Add the honey and slowly whisk in until it dissolves. Whisk in the cocoa powder one teaspoon at a time. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. If you’re in the mood for mint add a few drops of peppermint oil. Best enjoyed on a rainy day in front of a warm fire with a good book!
