This recipe is for a true "hot cocoa," meaning it uses cocoa rather than chocolate to give it that chocolatey flavor.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup non-dairy coconut or almond milk beverage

  • 1 tablespoon full-fat canned coconut milk

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon honey or other liquid sweetener

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

  • 1 tablespoon toasted desiccated coconut

1. In a small pot, combine the milks and honey. Bring them just to a simmer, stirring until the honey dissolves. Pour it into your mug. (Optional: use a milk aerator at this point to add froth. If you do not own an aerator, you can also use a blender, or pour the milk into a french press, moving the press up an down to create bubbles).  

2. Bring the water to a simmer and whisk in the cocoa. Pour the cocoa mixture into your mug of frothed milk. 

3. Top with toasted coconut an serve!
