Dairy Free, GAPS, etc. Hot Cocoa

My brothers who are on GAPS were playing in the snow yesterday, and I came up with this hot cocoa recipe. Unlike other GAPS/SCD hot cocoas I’ve tried, this one doesn’t taste too strongly of coconut or honey. Enjoy!

1/2 cup full fat coconut milk (I use Nature’s Forest)
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp vanilla

Add the coconut milk and water to a blender. Blend for a minute or so, or until the lumps from the coconut milk are gone. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and heat on medium. Whisk in the honey, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Continue to whisk until hot. Serve.

(Note: the amounts of coconut milk and water you need will depend on how thick the coconut milk is, so you may need to adjust this recipe slightly.)
