Step 1

Add coconut milk and almond milk to a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Whisk in chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and vanilla; mixing until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. I recommend starting with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, tasting, then adding more in if you feel it’s necessary. Lastly add in a tiny pinch of salt. Taste and adjust flavor as necessary.

Top with homemade whipped cream, coconut milk whipped cream, or marshmallows.
