I am on a recipe and vlog roll this month! I have a Christmas-y vlog, complete with wood-working ambitions, salsa dancing, and a Paleo peppermint hot chocolate recipe, over on Youtube today.
Here's the video (click HERE to be redirected to Youtube):
And here's the hot chocolate recipe!
To make one mug of peppermint hot chocolate you will need:
- 1 1/4 c. of coconut milk*
- 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
- 2 honey-sweetened chocolate peppermint patties**
- A splash of vanilla
*I use canned coconut cream without added guar or xanthan gum. I skim off the thickest cream and use it for whipped cream (just whip the cream with a splash of maple syrup, and voila! You've got yourself some whipped cream!), and then use the more watery milk for the hot chocolate.
**I like the honey-sweetened chocolate mints from Trader Joe's (see my video for example), but you can use THESE more expensive mints, too.
Put all the ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, whisking continuously, until the mints have melted, the cocoa is incorporated, and the mixture is steaming hot.
Top with whipped coconut cream, and enjoy!
A very merry Thursday to you, my friends!
Keep marching on, you Warriors, you.
