Hot Cocoa for One

Before winter leaves us, I thought I'd share with you all this simple hot cocoa recipe. I don't drink hot cocoa very often. I'm actually not really into sweet drinks at all. But once in a while, when it's unbelievable cold and snowing and bleak outside, I suddenly get a craving for some hot cocoa. Whether you drink it all the time or like to enjoy it sparingly, this rich, creamy, and not too sweet drink will hit the spot.


2/3 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup almond milk
1T cocoa powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
11/2 T pure maple syrup


Combine ingredients in a medium pot on low heat. Stir mixture until hot, 3 to 5 minutes.

Pour into mug, top with cinnamon, cocoa powder, whipped (coconut) cream, or all three! Enjoy this winter treat!
