Ingredients
  

Optional toppings:

  • whipped plant based cream
  • grated chocolate

Instructions
 

  • Pour evaporated coconut milk in a pot.
  • In a small cup put arrowroot or constrach powder. Take 1/2 tbsp of evaporated coconut milk from a pot and add it to the starch. Mix together until you get a slurry. Then pour the slurry back to the rest of evaporated coconut milk.
  • Add to the pot also condensed coconut milk, vanilla and salt.
  • Put the pot on the stove and heat it until it starts boiling. Leave it to boil for a few seconds, then turn the heat to low.
  • Add chocolate to the pot and leave it to melt. Mix well together with a spoon.
  • Turn off the heat and pour hot chocolate into a mug. The mixture will thicken as it cools.
  • Decorate with plant based whipped cream (wait for the hot chocolate to cool a little bit before doing that if you don't want the whipped cream to melt) and grated chocolate if desired. Serve warm.

Notes

*If you want to use your own sweetener you can replace sweetened condensed coconut milk with 1/2 tbsp maple syrup and add more evaporated coconut milk, about 1 tbsp more.
