A nice treat on a cold winter afternoon is a cup of hot chocolate. I tried an experiment using coconut milk. It worked. At least for me.
In a small saucepan place 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar, and 1/4 cup water. Stir very well then, over medium heat, bring to a simmer. Simmer one minute. Add 2 cups coconut milk (NOT coconut water). Stir well. Continue heating until hot chocolate is the temperature you enjoy. Pour into mugs and sip with pleasure. This is not very sweet. If you like it sweeter, add 1 or 2 more teaspoons sugar.
This makes two regular-sized mugs of hot chocolate. Dear One drank his...!
Just another try at not using dairy.
