    Coconut milk cocoa

    Primal Fuel
    I had this rather than coffee this morning. A massive Starbucks mug full of it with a teaspoon of coconut oil too - so not low calorie at all. But it has kept me full all day!

    Heat the coconut milk on the hob. Boil a small amount of water in a kettle.

    I pre-heated the mug with boiling water, then added 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and three teaspoons of cocoa powder. Add a little hot water if necessary and work to a paste.

    Then add the coconut milk a little at a time while stirring to avoid lumps!

    It's pretty thick stuff, and very satisfying I prefered being able to taste the cocoa so I did not sweeten it.

    Oh, yum! How have I not thought to do that before?!? I'll definitely be making that during the fall/winter. =]

    I have this every morning, with slightly less cocoa powder. If you stir the cocoa powder, coconut milk, and coconut oil together to make a paste before pouring the boiling water and this will keep the cocoa from clumping and break up the coconut oil droplets. Also, sprinkle on a touch of cinnamon.

    I've had a version of this, cold, as a morning beverage (also NOT lo-cal): cup of coconut milk, tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder, spice of choice (mine was usually ginger), and some whey if desired. Prep the night before by putting it in a shaker and shaking like mad. Chill over night. In the morning enjoy a nearly pudding like beverage. Darn yummy breakfast.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    This sounds like something I can take to work in my thermos for breakfast- I'll definitely give it a go. Thanks for the idea!
