Coconut Hot Chocolate

I’m sitting here trying to find motivation to finish my Molecular Biology essay, but it’s just not happening. So I thought I’d share a quick little recipe with you guys.

It’s been a very cold winter, showing no signs of getting warmer anytime soon(although I do keep trying to dress for spring, and end up freezing), and I think there’s nothing more satisfying than a nice cup of hot chocolate to put some warmth back into your bones.

Coconut milk is high in fat (don’t worry too much about this, it’s not a bad thing), meaning that it thickens up wonderfully when heated, creating a smooth and creamy hot chocolate. So I’m going to sit here, enjoy my drink and procrastinate some more, whilst dreaming of some sunshine.
