  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (try BPA free)
  • 2 cups water or coconut milk beverage
  • 6 tbsp. organic cocoa
  • ~1/3 cup honey to taste OR 3 tbsp. agave nectar or 1 tsp. stevia (Depending on how sweet you like your cocoa! Remember, you add in small quantities at a time, you can always add but can never take away!)
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg (optional)


  1. Over medium heat, combine all the the ingredients in a medium sized sauce pan. While heating, whisk the  mixture till well combined. Continue to stir until the mixture just barely  breaks into a boil.
  2. If you’d like to create a nice foam on top, pour the mixture between to sauce pans/pitchers a five or six times times. You can also use a french press or milk frother, if you have one. Pump the press a few times to create some foam.
  3. Pour the hot cocoa into mugs, add a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg if you’d like and enjoy!
