Strawberry Hot Chocolate

You know how chocolate-dipped strawberries are one of the seven wonders of the world?  Well.  This is basically like drinking them.

Strawberry Hot Chocolate

Prep time: 5 minutes   Cook time: 10 minutes   Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

 

Ingredients

1 cup full-fat coconut milk

1 cup water

2 tbsp cacao powder

2 tbsp melted chocolate (I used Enjoy Life mini chips)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

1 tbsp honey

6 large strawberries (plus more for decor, if desired)

 

Directions

1.  Add coconut milk and water to a pot and mix together.  Warm over medium heat.

2.  When milk is warmed, but not boiling, mix in the cacao, melted chocolate, vanilla extract and powder, and honey.  Whisk everything well until the powders are well-dissolved.

3.  Allow to heat for 2-3 more minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure everything stays even.  Do not allow to boil.

4.  Remove from the stove just before the chocolate begins to boil (it will start to have a few bubbles coming up, this is when you take it off).  Add strawberries and hot chocolate to a blender (I simply used my large Nutribullet attachment and it fit everything perfectly) and blend until smooth.  Split between two mugs and decorate with extra chocolate-covered strawberries, if desired.
