Peppermint Cream Hot Cocoa (Dairy Free)
So peppermint and chocolate are a favorite at our house. So I thought it would be fun to make it into hot cocoa on a cooler day like today. It is a delicious way to warm up. I even made it dairy free. It is a fast and easy recipe. You won't be buying mixing again when you see how easy it is. It was a nice creamy treat. Happy Holidays.
2/3 C canned coconut milk (chilled at least a couple hours)
1 1/2 C cashew milk or almond milk of milk of your choosing
1 1/2 T cocoa
5 T honey or vegan sweetener
1/2 tsp peppermint oil or peppermint extract
Whipped coconut milk.
1. In a saucepan on medium heat. Pour coconut milk and cashew milk together. Stir in the cocoa. I used a wire whisk.
2. Stir in honey and oil. Heat until all the cocoa is warm.
3. Take off the heat pour into cups.
4. With the remaining thick coconut milk off the top. Not the liquid. Beat the milk until soft peaks form and place a dollop of cream on top the hot cocoa. Enjoy!
