Decadent Coconut Hot Chocolate

Decadent Coconut Hot Chocolate from The Foodie Teen cookbook

I’ve used both cacao powder and dark chocolate here for the ultimate chocolate hit – this hot chocolate is seriously rich! Thick and creamy, the coconut milk gives it a hint of lovely coconut flavour. Feel free to use another homemade nut milk instead of the almond milk if you like. This is a perfect weekend breakfast treat.

For how many? Serves 4


  • 200ml full-fat tinned coconut milk
  • 125ml almond milk
  • 1 heaped tsp cacao powder
  • 1 heaped tsp coconut sugar or unrefined brown sugar
  • 50g high-quality dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips, chopped
  • coconut whipped cream, toasted shredded coconut and chocolate shavings, to serve (optional)


Put all the ingredients into a small saucepan over a medium heat and simmer, whisking constantly, for about 5 minutes, until steaming and the chocolate has melted.

Serve in small glasses – it’s very rich!
