Ridiculously Delicious Paleo Hot Chocolate

6 Jan

I know just what you are thinking because I’m thinking it too.  It’s freezing, and it’s the perfect time for some Hot Chocolate!  So I decided to share my awesomely delicious and Paleo Hot Chocolate (or Hot Cocoa) recipe!  It beats all the non-paleo versions (because of the coconut milk flavor) and it takes less than 2 minutes to make!

Prep Time: 1 minute

Cook Time: 1 minute

Yield: 1 cup

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp of honey (or to taste!)

Instructions

1.  Pour 1 cup of coconut milk in to a microwaveable mug, and heat coconut milk in microwave for 1 minute.

2.  Add in cocoa powder and honey.  Here’s the deal with the honey.  If you don’t care for sweetness much or if you are using sweetened cocoa powder, you can skip it all together.  If you’re not sure how sweet you want it, start small (1/2 tsp of honey) and then increase amount until your desired sweetness!

3.  Stir well!  The heated coconut milk should help do the trick of getting it well blended.  If you were to do this in cold coconut milk it would be hard.

4.  (Optional) Heat up for 30 seconds to make sure your hot chocolate is super hot! Or just start drinking it :)

    LOWER FAT/CALORIE VERSION:
    Love this idea – I tweaked it a little (just because I couldn’t throw down over 30 grams of fat from the full-fat coconut milk and not feel guilty about it!) :) Out of the total 14oz (give or take a little) cup I made – I filled the mug about 2/3 of the way full with Silk light Almond milk (Vanilla flavored), and then the other 1/3 with Thai Kitchen’s Light Coconut Milk (4.5 grams of fat as compared to 14 grams with the full-fat version). I understand that a lot of the thickness and decadence from the full-fat version is sometimes what you need to quell a craving, and I will DEFINITELY have your recipe at some point for sure! ;) Anywho, after heating the milk as directed above, I then added the cocoa (unsweetened) to my liking, and then also added the honey (and some agave) to my liking as well. Just my take on your already great recipe! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to try a different way to make it (instead of cutting it out of my diet all together!) Love all your recipes/pics/etc! Thanks!!!! :D

      Hey! I totally love when people adapt their own versions of my recipes! Gets me and everyone else to try new things :) Your version also sounds yummy, and perfect for anyone who is trying to do low fat/calorie :) Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for this awesome recipe, my kids loved drinking this when they came in from playing in the snow (a rarity here in East Tennessee). We had to “cut it” with some coconut milk beverage because it was a bit too rich for them. :-)
