Coconut milk hot chocolate


  • 500 ml coconut milk
  • 120 grams dark chocolate broken into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons muscovado sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 ml double cream - for serving
  • 100 grams marshmallows - for serving optional, non-vegetarian


  • Put the coconut milk in a medium pan, add the chocolate, cocoa powder, sugar, cinnamon powder and vanilla extract. Place the pan on a medium heat and mix all the ingredients until the chocolate is starting to melt.
  • Bring the mixture almost to boil and turn off the heat.
  • Separately, whip the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  • For serving, pour the hot chocolate into mugs or glasses, add a generous amount of whipped cream and marshmallows.
  • Serve hot.


  • Please note that due to the gelatine content in marshmallows, this is not a veggie-friendly recipe.
