It’s day 10, and it’s been a long one, so this was an invention of desperation. I already knew I couldn’t possibly go three whole weeks without chocolate. Since dairy is out, I picked up some coconut milk early on in this experiment.
I spent a little time asking google about making hot chocolate with coconut milk and unsweetened cocoa, but all the recipes involved adding some sort of sweetener – leading me to believe that my cocoa would probably be bitter and unsatisfying. So what did I do? I tried it anyway, clearly.
- 8 oz unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Heat the coconut milk however you like – I used the microwave.
Pour a small amount into your mug with the cocoa powder and stir until smooth. Stir in the rest of the coconut milk and enjoy.
Now I warn you, don’t go expecting Swiss Miss, but if you like dark chocolate, this is pretty fantastic. I’m never going to make cocoa any other way.
