This hot chocolate with coconut milk is rich, creamy and it’s hiding a secret!

I should warn you, this is like drinking pure, creamy, melted chocolate. It’s thick, rich, waaaaaaayyyy creamy, and will definitely satisfy any craving you could ever have for chocolate.

Recently, I received what seems like a lifetime supply of baking chocolate. So I started thinking about all the possibilities and I should just tell you that you may be seeing quite a few chocolate recipes coming your way over the course of the new year.

A close up shot of a white mug sitting on a white saucer filled with this Clean Eating Coconut Hot Chocolate.

But I finally decided on making hot chocolate because Mini Chef and I had a planned afternoon of cookie baking. And what goes better with cookies than hot chocolate???

So we turned on some music (Dean Martin to be exact), and pulled out a big pot. But then it dawned on me that regular milk is not part of my eating plan any longer. So I grabbed a couple cans of light coconut milk, a little unsure of what the final result would be or if I would be left to drink an entire pot of coconut hot chocolate because Mini Chef didn’t like it.

Well, I can tell you that was NOT a problem! This chocolate was just so rich and dreamy-creamy that the two of us nearly ended up wrestling for the last few sips. Good thing he’s cute, or I would have tackled him for that last little bit.

I can’t even begin to describe really, the decadence that this chocolate produced in that pot. It was like a thousand angels decided to sprinkle magic chocolate dust into my pot. And with Mini Chef doing all the stirring, it was no bother at all to make!

I should warn you that this coconut hot chocolate is very thick and very creamy. It’s truly more like drinking melted chocolate instead of regular hot chocolate. I suppose you could add more coconut milk to tone it down a bit, but why would you want to do that???!!! And if you have some left over, you can always make delicious popsicles with this. It’s a win-win!

Please note, this should be served in small glasses and in small amounts. A little of this stuff goes a long way and will definitely soothe the chocolate-craving tiger in you!


I had some left over so I just stuck it in the fridge overnight thinking I would let Mini Chef have some after school the next day. Well, as far as happy accidents go, what I found the next day could not have made me any happier. It turned into pudding!!!!

  • 2 15 oz. cans light coconut milk
  • 1 cup 100% pur cocoa baking chocolate (unsweetened)
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract (I used bourbon vanilla)
  • 1 dash ground cinnamon (sprinkled over the top for serving)


  • Pour the coconut milk into a pot and turn the heat on medium-low.
  • Add in the chocolate and begin stirring. It will melt relatively quickly, but you must stir constantly to avoid it burning on the bottom of your pot.
  • The more the chocolate melts, the more you can raise the heat. But be sure you NEVER turn the heat up all the way. You don't want to cook this on high. Medium high should be the highest you go. This should simmer rather than boil.
  • When everything is melted and nicely combined, quickly stir in your vanilla extract and remove from heat.
  • Add honey to taste (the above measurement was what tasted good to me. But you can adjust).
  • Pour into cups and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.

  27. Jill Esham says:

    This recipe sounds awesome. I love coconut almost as much as chocolate. I would use the chocolate in my eating clean protein bar recipe. The recipe doesn’t call for chocolate, but I find that just a small amount of bittersweet chocolate pieces adds a whole new dimension to the bars. This looks like the perfect chocolate to use for dipping dried apricots, also.

  33. graciouspantry says:

    No, the coconut flavor is not strong. Yes, PB would be good!

  34. graciouspantry says:

    I havent tried, but I’m sure it could work. You’d just have to play around with it a bit to be sure you get the right consistency. It’s hard to melt and stir in a slow cooker because you typically need the lid on to get the temperature right. This recipe needs stirring.

  35. I would def make pb and chocolate brownies. One of my favorite combos!

  36. I liked the Facebook page for Santa Barbara Chocolates!

    I am not a huge fan of chocolate and can usually leave it alone without temptation, maybe because of the sugar and calories. But with this stuff, it appears the sky is the limit. Lots of recipes come to mind.. most of them for my children who are very adverse to my eating clean campaign.

  94. I liked Santa Barbara Chocolate on Facebook 🙂

  109. Cyndi Bigley says:

    Good Gracious I have four outstanding young people between the ages of 23-27
    who’s respectful workaholic values and uplifting character pays off big time to
    all of us fortunate enough to around them every day! I would love to make them my ..up until now…secret “light and crunchy” recipe for cold pressed flax candy which needs the Auburn Cocoa Powder . Did you know Cold Pressed Flax Seeds has equal amounts of fiber to carbs? That’s good news for us watching our sugar/carbs! Just add 1 tbs of sugar, or your chosen healthy granulated – not liquid -sweetener, a 1/4 tsp/dash, and I mean a dash of salt, 1 cup organic cold pressed flax seeds and mix together in a bowl. Then take one green tomato slice (save the rest for relish or more candy later) and smash it up, blend it, or purify it until its mushy and add it to the flax by smashing it into it. Make sure the tomato separates into pieces or clumps in the bowl. Now take 1 tbs of your favorite healthy oil such as coconut – or canola and heat it in a smal pan, I use cast iron for the health benefits over medium high heat for arox 4 minutes or until a dab of the crumbly mixture floats when you drop it into the oil. Fry for one or two minutes until brown and remove with a slotted spoon or tonges and allow to drain on paper towel until it returns to room temperature, about 20 minutes. This is critical becuase it hardens at room temperature and not before! Enjoy! I would certainly”graciously” share any
    of the prizes with my truly extraordinary family and with the children and
    valuable others they spend their time with every day! Here’s the reasons why I
    should spread around these great prizes! First for my first grandchild whom is
    on the way! Yes, that’s right and my son-in-law who is due to be a first time
    father on Mother’s day 2013! My son-in-law’s name is Doug and he earned the
    Paramedic of the year award for 2012, two weeks ago and he surely deserves some
    goodies, he and my son Chad, also an awesome paramedic, accompany the children’s
    Paramedic/EMT emergency pediatric transport downtown. Chad, 23 also attends,
    pays for and makes the grades for his full time nursing/medical school education
    and he supports himself and his own accommodations…at 23! He surely deserves
    some goodies I and his two sisters could make for him! Doug and Chad are lucky
    men already though as Doug is husband to my lovely and very pregnant eldest
    daughter, Elisabeth, a graphic designer, who loves to make, and share her with
    her brother Chad, candy and raised money for charity that way as a teenager, in
    fact she has always dreamed of having her own homemade candy store! But that’s
    not all,… Chad encourages and uplifts others every day through his daily
    advice and good works on face-book…but wait…yes there’s more…Chad has
    another sister, my gracious daughter Tori, who adores him and frankly all of us
    so much I know she would find a way to make the chocolate extraordinary as she
    greets cheerfully, and playfully, every child and weary parent each day in her
    retail department store job while completing her dual degree elementary and
    special needs teaching program at the University oF Florida! Whew, that’s so
    many good gracious blessings at once, I hope you will allow me to make use of
    and provide any of the prizes and/or chocolate to sweeten up our lives in a
    healthy and happy way! Thanks for being awesome and continue your Graciousness!

    I would make that bread again with this chocolate.

  136. andiesayswhat says:

  146. Does the coconut milk give it a very coconut-y flavor? I’m not a huge coconut fan, but I am a HUGE chocolate fan!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I personally couldn’t taste the coconut. But I’m very used to drinking coconut milk. To me, it was very chocolatey.

    I ALWAYS add sweet potato purée to my hot chocolate for my kids. It adds dome nutrients and thickens the texture. I just roast, purée and freeze little cubes ahead of time. Though you wouldn’t need to thicken this recipe!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      E. Hernandez – No, this one is pretty thick. But I do have a sweet potato hot chocolate recipe on my blog. 🙂

  170. I’m not familiar with this chocolate. Your recipe says 100% cocoa, but baking chocolate. Is this shaped more measurably like chocolate chips, or in bar form? Recipe sounds delicious!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kathy – Yes, the chocolate came in flat, round chips. They were easy to measure.

  171. Would this turn out okay if made on the stove? I want to make it for christmas dinner but I believe our only crock pot will be in use by my mother. ???? I’m guessing if I kept it at a low temp and watched it carefully, it might be okay…I’m just worried about the bottom burning. Thoughts?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rose – This is a stove top recipe. Not a slow cooker recipe.

  172. Could you use carob powder instead of cocoa? I cannot have caffeine or thiomobrine, which both are in cocoa :/

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tina – Sure! If memory serves, they have about the sam consistency. That being said, I haven’t tried it. So it’s hard to give a completely certain answer.

  173. Bonnie Grady says:

    I’m sorry, but I’m confused. To me “100% cocoa” means the powdered version, and “baking chocolate, unsweetened” means the block. Then you say “Pour in the chocolate” which sounds like liquid, and then you speak of the chocolate melting. I’m sorry, but what kind of chocolate did you use, please? Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Bonnie – I reworded it for you. It’s 100% pure cocoa baking chocolate. Nothing else added.

  174. Now this is definitely on the to make list! Yummy and it doubles as dessert bonus!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Anne – Ya, that was a very happy surprise! LOL!
