Creamy dessert drink - even for vegans and those who are lactose-intolerant. Hot chocolate with coconut milk is delicious.
My husband is vegan and I make him hot chocolate and just usually substitute soy or rice milk for "regular" milk but I decided to try this as we love coconut milk recipes. We both LOVED it! Not too sweet but sweet enough, same for the chocolatyness. I just ran out of regular cocoa so I used Hershey's Special Dark instead. It turned out lovely! Thanks for sharing a delicious Vegan version of hot cocoa!! - 17 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
It definitely didn't taste exactly like real hot cocoa, nor was it very creamy, but I have to say it was tasty nonetheless. I might substitute the water for some soy milk or add more coconut milk next time. - 09 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am not vegan; I had leftover coconut milk from another recipe and stumbled across this one looking for ways to use it up. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. I found it rather sweet-- likely I could have doubled the water and made it into two servings. It's got quite a high fat and sugar content (although probably comparable to regular hot chocolate) so it is definitely a beverage to drink as an occasional treat. Aside from the too-sweetness I liked the flavour; I will probably make this again. - 22 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
