Vegan Coconut Chocolate Milk

For breakfast or dessert, this creamy drink will turn you into a chocaholic.

Using only a handful of ingredients, this rich and creamy beverage is a healthy alternative to dairy-based chocolate milk with a lovely coconut undertone.
 
Makes 2 cups
 
What You Need:

2 cups warm water
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tablespoons maple syrup or 2 pitted Medjool dates
1½ tablespoons cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
 
What You Do:

1. Using a blender, blend the water, shredded coconut, dates, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt until smooth and frothy. For a silky milk consistency, strain the mixture through a nut milk bag or a few layers of cheesecloth over a bowl or milk container.
 
2. Squeeze gently to remove all the liquid. Store milk in a Mason jar in a refrigerator for up to 5 days. The milk might separate while sitting, so be sure to give the jar a shake before using.
