Brandon & I actually bought a coconut for this recipe! Please note the multiple ‘hacks’ made to this poor coconut. We finally broke down and sourced YouTube for some guidance.
We were thinking it would taste much more coconut-y than canned coconut milk. Let me tell you, just buy the canned stuff. Reserve some of the cream that separates inside the can and dollop it on top of the mocha. It tastes like nutty whipped cream!
Paleo Coconut Mocha
- 4 c coconut milk
- 1/2 c cocoa powder
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1 t instant coffee powder*
- 1/4 t salt
Dump all the ingredients in a saucepan on the stove. The cocoa powder won’t dissolve until the milk has heated a bit, so don’t panic. Use a whisk to swirl it all together and serve hot, just like coffee.
*Instant coffee, as opposed to regular ground coffee or espresso powder, dissolves INSTANTLY in hot liquids.
