I've discovered (or rediscovered) the secret to thick dairy-free hot chocolate without the use of nuts, soy, or added gum: Dates. I hope you enjoy it too :-)
Thick Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate
Puree (in high power blender or food processor):
1 can Thai Kitchen full-fat coconut milk (Natural Value does not contain gum, but I haven't tried this hot chocolate with that brand)
1 can-full of water
6 soft pitted medjool dates
2 tbsp plus 1 tsp cocoa or cacao powder
a few drops of liquid stevia if more sweetener is needed
Slowly bring almost to a simmer.
Let cool to desired temperature.
