Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mixture

As you warm the milk, whisk the cacao until no lumps remain. You want the milk to heat but NOT boil! Once it has warmed up, mix in the coconut milk, peppermint and vanilla.

It's important to whisk really well to remove any chunks from the coconut milk.

Continue heating for a few more minutes until it looks creamy.
