Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate

I like to occasionally make myself some homemade hot chocolate to drink on a chilly evening, but lately drinking milk has made me sneezy. So here's a recipe I made up using coconut milk instead! It was rich and delicious with a pleasant coconut aftertaste. Enjoy!

  • 2 cups coconut milk (one can's worth)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract

  • Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in saucepan; stir in water.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils. Continue boiling and stirring for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in coconut milk and heat.
  • Remove from heat, and add the vanilla.

If you find it's a bit too thick or rich for you at this point, simply add more hot water until it's to your taste! This was enough for two people.
