I am a creature always in search of the easy button when it comes to cooking up food in the kitchen. Yes, in my past I was considered a convenience food junkie. All of my food come in packages or cans and it was a lot of work retraining myself to cook up food from scratch. However, one of the foods I missed the most was hot chocolate . There is just something about sitting on the sofa watching my favorite TV shows and drinking a hot cup of hot chocolate. It was time to dig deep and come up with a Paleo hot chocolate mix so I could do this in an instant rather than a good 10 minutes. Yes, I am that lazy sometimes
This trick was to find a milk powder and lucky for me Wilderness Natural’s makes a coconut milk powder. This would make a wonderful homemade gift!
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup coconut milk powder
- In a coffee grinder place the coconut and grind until you have a fine powder.
- Pour this into a bowl with the coconut milk powder and the cocoa powder and mix with a spoon until well blended.
- Store in a glass jar.
- To make 1 cup of Hot Cocoa add 2 tablespoons of the mix to 1 cup of water.
