It is important that the coconut milk is as thick as possible to ensure proper consistency and thickening as it chills. It also makes a great ice cream (see instructions). To make mint chocolate, add 1 teaspoon of pure mint extract after all the other ingredients are combined and fully incorporated.
1/2 cup thick coconut milk or coconut cream
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. honey, warmed until runny
Using a whisk, mix the cocoa powder into the coconut milk. Add honey. When the honey is added, ensure that all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. It should have a relatively thick consistency, although the warmth of the honey may cut its thickness initially. Use as is, or chill in the fridge until it’s to the consistency of a spread (use as icing) or freeze to make ice cream.
