WW Recipe of the Day: Coconut Hot Cocoa
This week's Weight Watcher's Weekly included a link to this recipe for coconut hot cocoa to celebrate National Cocoa day (which they reported as 12/13, but turns out to be 12/12) that immediately got my attention. I'm a huge fan of both hot cocoa and coconut, but had never thought to combine the flavors.
So in honor of National Cocoa Day, I decided to treat myself to a cup. I ended up making several changes to the original recipe.
I decreased the proportions to make only 1 serving instead of 4. And I used my favorite coconut milk beverage instead of a combination of skim milk and canned light coconut milk.
To kick up the coconut flavor a bit, I added a little coconut extract. And I topped it with a little non-dairy light coconut milk whipped topping and a sprinkle of coconut, since it was a celebration, after all.
