VEGAN HOT CACAO

I love to snuggle in the winter, especially with coco. My taste buds have changed drastically since I turned vegan so this coco is a reclamation to my new taste buds and will hopefully be a delish, velvety brew of creamy coconut and deep bitter chocolate!

The only sugar added is from the cocowhip, try it before adding sugar; it is a very earthy, smooth treat.

Always cook with an open heart and mind AND clean ingredients!
