Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate

It feels weird posting this recipe today since we've had a sudden warm-up and it's currently over 60 degrees outside. This might have been more appropriate on Tuesday when we got a foot of snow, but I digress, knowing Ohio it will cool down so that you can enjoy this in chilly weather by the beginning of next week.

Recipe from Ambitious Kitchen

-1 – 15 oz can lite coconut milk
-1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (about 2 oz dark chocolate)
-1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-Small pinch of salt, to taste
-For topping: marshmallows and coconut flakes

Add coconut milk and almond milk to a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Whisk in chocolate chips, cacao powder and vanilla; stirring until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Start with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder and add an additional tablespoon after tasting. Finish the hot chocolate with a pinch of salt. Taste and adjust flavor as necessary.

Top with whipped cream, marshmallows, or coconut flakes. This recipe makes two servings. 

Dave conquered this hot chocolate for breakfast this morning. The finished product is pretty creamy and thick, a lot thicker than traditional hot chocolate. It's also pretty rich. Overall, Dave enjoyed how easy this was to make and would be happy to make it again.
