  • Hot chocolate:
  • 2 cups almond milk or coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon bourbon more or less depending on preference
  • Whipped cream:
  • 1 can 14 oz. coconut cream
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 3 vanilla beans
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • For the hot chocolate: heat milk over stovetop and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cacao, vanilla and bourbon; pour into mug.
  • For the whipped cream: open the can of coconut cream and drain all of the liquid from it; pour cream into a bowl.
  • Add powdered sugar, vanilla bean and extract and mix together, preferably with an electric mixer.
  • Pour whipped cream into a bowl and place in the freezer. The longer it freezes the more like "cool whip" it'll become, but it should be ok to use after 20 minutes or so.
  • Top hot chocolate with whipped cream and enjoy!
