Homemade Coconut Hot Chocolate on a Snowy Day – Nikki’s Coconut Butter Review {Ad}

on January 29, 2014

A few months back I ordered a jar of Nikki’s Coconut Butter in the Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie flavor.  To be honest I liked it but didn’t really know what to do with it.  But today…ta daaaa!

Since it’s a snowy day I was really craving hot chocolate and so were the kids.  I got the can of hot chocolate out and ughhh!  Really?  You would not believe the amount of strange ingredients in hot chocolate mix?!  So anyway I decided to make some of my own.  Enter Nikki’s Coconut Butter 🙂 (click to find out more about Nikki’s Coconut Butter Products

Coconut Hot Chocolate

8 oz of almond milk (I used Silk unsweetened)

2 Tablespoons Nikki’s Coconut Butter (Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie flavor)

1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup

1/2 Tablespoon Dark 100% Cocoa Powder (because I love me some extra dark chocolate flavor)

 

Heat all ingredients to a nice simmer so all the ingredients blend together, let cool and yum!  Hot chocolate with a nice hint of coconut that doesn’t scare the heck out of me 🙂  Enjoy!Screen shot 2014-01-29 at 3.07.29 PM

** Nikki’s provided me a jar of coconut butter of my choice (I paid shipping only) I was not monetarily compensated.  All opinions expressed are my own and were not influenced by the Nikki’s Coconut Butter company. 🙂
