cinnamon, cocoa powder, or chocolate sauce for garnish(optional)
Heat non-dairy milk and coconut milk in a small pot. Heat until steaming but not boiling.
Whisk in cocoa powder.
Add sweetener to taste, stir.
If using coconut whip, add to the top.
If garnishing with cinnamon, sprinkle on top.
Recipe makes 1 1/4 cups of hot chocolate. Double or triple as needed.
You can use either canned full fat or light coconut milk (not the refrigerated coconut milk you buy in cartons). Using the full fat coconut milk thickens the hot chocolate slightly and makes it extra creamy.
