As shown, topped with freshly whipped cream and additional dark chocolate shavings.


  • 3/4 c plus 2 tbsp (7 fl oz/207 ml) unsweetened carton coconut milk (from the box, not the can)
  • 2 tbsp (1 fl oz/30 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 oz (43 g) 95% chocolate, very finely chopped (I used Lindt)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • (Optional) 1 tsp brown sweetener (I used Swerve Brown)
  • freshly whipped heavy cream and chocolate shavings to garnish, if desired


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the coconut milk, heavy cream, and sea salt and whisk together over medium heat.
  2. Once the mixture just begins to steam, add the chocolate and sweetener (if using) and whisk continuously to melt.
  3. Continue to cook, whisking continuously, for 3 minutes total, then remove from the heat and pour into two small mugs.
  4. Garnish as desired and serve.
