Hot Coco(nut) Milk

Who doesn’t enjoy a good cup of hot cocoa??  I’m not talking about the little packets that include ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, sugars and hydrogenated oils!  I am talking about a good-for-your-body-and-soul hot cocoa that you can not only savor, but enjoy knowing you are drinking some essential nutrients not found in sugar and oil-ladened convenience packets (get rid of those!!).
This recipe includes coconut milk instead of regular dairy milk (awesome for those that are lactose intolerant or are wanting to lean out body composition!) and no need for sugar!  Coconut milk contains anti-microbial, anti-bacterial properties known to boost immune function.  Although coconut milk contains a dense caloric value, the caloric properties contain short and medium-chain fatty acids that the body uses readily, easily and efficiently for energy instead of storing as fat!
1/4 cup Coconut Milk
 1 tbsp  Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
 1 cup Tap Water
 1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground


       Combine coconut milk, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Add vanilla. Stir.
