Looking for a healthier twist on hot chocolate? This is your go-to recipe! Using coconut milk and maple syrup makes for a healthier option when it comes to this easy and oh so satisfying hot chocolate!
2 cans full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 organic peppermint tea bag (optional)
1 can full fat coconut milk
1 tsp maple syrup
For the hot chocolate, pour 2 cans of coconut milk into a saucepan. Sift in cocoa powder. Whisk in maple syrup. Whisk until mixture is smooth and hot.
Place the peppermint tea bag in your favourite mug, pour the hot chocolate mixture in and top with coconut cream.
