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.
Coconut Hot Cocoa
- 3 tablespoons canned unsweetened coconut milk
- 3/4 cup water
- 3 soft pitted Medjool dates
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- Dash of cinnamon
- 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.
