Cold drinks in the middle of winter? Sure! Why not! Let’s face it. You can never get the temperature of hot hot chocolate right. It’s too hot so you have to wait to enjoy it and then it’s not hot enough. Or you try to make it not so hot and it might as well be cold.
Enter Frozen Hot Chocolate! And this one happens to be dairy free, too! I’m not going to go off on any “dairy bad” rant. I just happen to really like coconut milk a lot!
Dairy Free Frozen Hot Chocolate
1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup cocoa (unsweetened)
4 tsp sugar
1 cup ice
1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Embrace winter with this amazing, creamy, chocolatey treat!
If you want to make this a grown up treat, add a splash of Kalhua, Bailey’s Irish Cream. And if you don’t like coconut milk, feel free to use the milk of your choice; almond, soy or regular old 2%.
Sorry I don’t have a more interesting picture with one of those fancy, tall glass mugs, a cute cookie straw, whipped cream and shavings. I could have made whipped cream but then it wouldn’t have been dairy free.
We’re in the middle of a winter weather weekend with rain, sleet, slush and snow. And since the quarter just ended at school and most weekend activities have been cancelled, we’re in for a relaxing weekend in Central Maryland with many more cups of Frozen Hot Chocolate to keep things sweet.
