  • Experimental Coconut Chocolate Buttermilk

    Tonight I am going to try a modified version of my cocococoa milk (chocolate and coconut milk)

    7 oz of Silk Coconut Milk (original)
    2.5 tablespoons Hershey's natural cocoa (un-dutched, lots of antioxidants)
    3 oz of buttermilk
    1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
    (ejoy chilled)

    The buttermilk will be a new addition to help cut the bitterness and make it even more creamy. It has about half the fat and calories as heavy whipping cream.

    Predictions? I am craving the fat from the buttermilk in tandem with the chocolately cocoa powder right now!

    We'll see how it goes!

    you lost me at buttermilk. I remember buttermilk being kind of sour.

    what's wrong with dutched? I thought Mark encouraged it?

      Dutched is extra processing - a lot of the antioxidants are removed during dutching which kind of removes the whole justification of dark chocolate as a "health food." But dutching eliminates the bitterness. I don't mind the bitterness so much - just tastes even chocolatier to me.

      Yeah buttermilk is a little... different. Could be nasty! XD

      an alternative would be heavy whipping cream - that's a ton of fat and calories though - this is meant to be a yummy snack not a meal. Hopefully edible!

      you can buy Hershey's cocoa as "special dark cocoa" - it's a mix of dutched and natural cocoa - on the side of the box though it explicitly states something to the effect of "fewer antioxidants than Hershey's all natural cocoa". Which is pretty cool for a company to admit to.

          'tis true, unfortunately.... it's alkalized which reduces the antioxidants
