If you’re looking for vegan and gluten-free alternative to chocolate mocha, try this!
Raw cocoa powder, coconut milk, and a bit of honey are mixed to make this winter favorite. And it comes together pretty quickly too!
HOMEMADE COCONUT MILK MOCHA
1/2 cup strong black coffee
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk, unsweetened
1 tsp raw organic cocoa powder
1 full tsp honey (you can also use maple syrup or stevia)
Make the coffee using your favorite brewing method. Whisk in 1 tsp cocoa powder and make sure it’s fully dissolved. Slightly heat 1/2 cup coconut milk and add to your coffee while stirring. Add 1 tsp honey, or to taste. Serve hot.
Makes 1 serving.
For those of you who like options: toast coconut flakes until deeply golden, remove from heat and top your mocha. Or, add 1-2 tsp rum – it’s delicious!
Hi Danijela. I like this recipe. It agrees with me. Why? Well, for example:
Puting coconut oil is not foreign to me as I adore it and do it every day. So you and I are on the same page with this):
But, I admit I never thought to put raw cacao powder in my coffee. I tasted raw cocoa nibs before and I can tell you that the taste is almost unpalatable (my enthusiasm kept me going to the end- but I wouldn’t repeat it).
This is rather ironic when you think it’s used to make the heavenly treat know as chocolate. ):
Question: Can I use some type of healthier sugar (coconut, brown etc)?
The thing is, I am not too crazy about honey. I don’t like it one bit. Will adding healthier type of sugar turn my healthy drink into a dangerous one? Thank you for your reply.
Hi Nikola, yes, you can use sweetener of your choice: coconut sugar, brown sugar, Stevia or any other sweetener that you normally use.
