Coconut Hot Cocoa

Somehow, mixing the products of a tropical tree — coconut milk and dates — may seem all wrong for making the perfect drink for a blizzardy afternoon. But this recipe will take you to cocoa nirvana. If you’ve got the ingredients, this version is super salubrious and delicious.

  • 3 tablespoons canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 soft pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • Dash of cinnamon
  1. Put all ingredients in the blender and puree until very smooth, gently heat in a pot on the stove. Sip and dream of the tropics.
