My husband got the family hooked on chocolate almond milk. Well, he ran out to the store to get some and NONE! We were seriously disappointed.
But to our delight, there were dry coconuts, sugar and cocoa in the house. So down the coconut was thrown ( no hammer in the house and to be honest I did need the water so this way is so much quicker), out came the blender, the cheese cloth, cocoa and the sugar.
Blend, blend, blend.
Strain, strain, strain.
Whisk, whisk, whisk.
Mix, mix, mix.
3 tsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp spice
Crack coconut and remove meat from shell. Blend with sufficient water and strain.
Put 3 cups coconut milk in a saucepan and whisk in cocoa powder. Add sugar and allow mixture to boil. Adjust sugar and cocoa if necessary but I prefer not too bitter chocolate.
