Snow! And a recipe
It snowed today! I know for most of you this winter that'll earn me an "OH SHUT UP," but we don't get much snow here. We look forward to it with an avidity that confuses Midwesterners no end.
It's late in the winter for us, and we figured that was that, no snow this year--until today! OK, it wasn't much, but it covered everything in a lovely blanket of fluffy white for a few hours, the kids got to play, and I got to make coconut milk cocoa for Josie, who's off dairy. Here's the recipe:
Coconut Milk Cocoa
1 can coconut milk
1 can water more or less--thin it to taste
sweetener to taste
1 tsp vanilla
a sprinkling of sea salt
In a pan combine all ingredients. Taste to adjust amounts of cocoa and sweetener. Don't leave out the salt! It helps bring out the flavors of the cocoa and vanilla, and actually intensifies the sweetener.
It's also good to add cinnamon and/or nutmeg, and even a little ground chile. mmm, chile...
Happy snow day!
