Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 mug


  • 1 can coconut milk refrigerated and separated
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips or chopped
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free sweet chocolate chips or chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch kosher salt Diamond Crystal


  • Place both chocolates, both sugars, and the cream from the top of the coconut milk in a heatproof bowl (preferably with a spout), and set aside.
  • Pour coconut milk and any residual cream into a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, whisking frequently. (The faster you whisk, the foamier the milk will be.)

  • Let sit about 1 minute, then add a heavy pinch of salt and whisk until completely smooth.
  • Pour into a mug and enjoy!
