Paleo Cocoa and Coconut Whipped Cream

You all voted so here is you Paleo-elect Cocoa and Whipped Cream recipes!

Let’s be real, we could all use a giant mug of cocoa after this supremely stressful election season. Or wine. But for the sake of this post, let’s just say cocoa.

Paleo Hot Cocoa // Serves 1

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond (or cashew) milk

1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 to 3 tablespoons raw honey (to taste)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a heavy bottom sauce pan, heat almond milk over medium high heat. Remove from heat before milk boils. Whisk remaining ingredients together with milk and voila! Add a dash of cinnamon if you’re an adventurous cocoa consumer 😉

Paleo Coconut Honey Whipped Cream // serves many or few (depending on how much of a whipped cream glutton you are!) 

1 (14 ounce) can of coconut cream – don’t flip out! Coconut cream is a real thing, I typically find it in my local Trader Joes, but most health food stores and even standard grocery stores carry it these days! IF you cannot locate a can of coconut cream, fear not! Just use a can of full fat coconut milk – it won’t be quite as thick, but that’s alright. (drain any water sitting under the cream)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 to 4 tablespoons raw honey

Place all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and blend with a stand up mixer, or hand held, for a good 5 minutes (gradually increase speed of mixer). You’ll see it start to become the proper consistency and then just serve in cocoa or coffee or on top of anything you like!
