delicious hot cocoa

Posted Jun 05 2009 5:07pm

Most cocoa mixes contain dairy products, way too much sugar, or hydrogenated something-or-other, and it just tastes so much better when you skip the mix and make it yourself. I recommend using soymilk with this cocoa; the nut or seed milks I've made myself tend to impart an unspecified "off" flavor to the final product. Coconut milk will make an extra-thick cocoa.

This will make two servings of cocoa.

1/2 c. water
2 T. sucanat or other dry sweetener
3 T. pure cocoa powder (I use Equal Exchange)
pinch of cinnamon
1 1/2 c. soymilk or coconut milk
2 T. coconut oil
1/2 t. vanilla extract

1. Dissolve the sweetener in the water. Bring to a low simmer and add the cocoa powder and cinnamon. Whisk constantly for about 3 minutes.

2. Lower the heat and whisk in the soymilk and oil. Heat through, but do not boil.

3. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Serve piping hot.
