Divine Hot Beverage

I absolutely adore coconut cream pie. The following is a tasty warm beverage for coconut cream pie hot chocolate. While August may not be the best time to sample, you can always save the recipe for a warm winter's evening. Once you have a taste, you will be dreaming up occasions where you can serve and enjoy. It may even become a new Christmas morning tradition!

Coconut Cream Pie Hot Chocolate
(Serves 4)

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut extract
  • 1 package (11 oz) white chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli)
  • Whipped cream
  • Shredded, sweetened coconut

Heat milk, cream and extract in a heavy saucepan. Whisk in chips and combine until smooth. Pour mixture into mugs and top with whipped cream and coconut. Serve and enjoy!

Note: This treat is equally delicious as a chocolate coconut drink as well!
