We're doing a December Advent Calendar, counting down amazing local products until Christmas. Not only do all of our items make great gifts, AND you have a chance to win the whole set (check out our contest), we're working to pair a recipe with each day!

Coconut Hot Chocolate

Combine Coconut Milk and Chocolate Almond Milk with some wicked good chocolate and you've got yourself a decadent cup of comfort. You know our hot chocolate rule: NEVER just add water!! Not sure about coconut milk? Check out Chef Carl's video all about using coconut water, milk and cream when cooking. Now all you need are some Gone Kooky cookies to go with! They are today's Local Advent Calendar feature!

(And perhaps you have some Bailey's kicking around...cause that always makes a nice addition.)

Ingredients:

  • 1 pouch De Siam coconut milk*
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened chocolate almond milk
