The hot chocolate in France is thick, rich, and absolutely perfect. After our recent French vacation, I knew I had to come home and make a low FODMAP French Hot Chocolate to enjoy in the chilly weather.
1 cup whole fat canned coconut milk (link to my favorite brand)
1 cup almond milk
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
½ teaspoon espresso powder
8 oz dark chocolate (I like 85%), chopped (or dairy free dark chocolate)
Whipped cream (½ cup is considered low FODMAP), optional for serving
In a medium saucepan over medium heat whisk the coconut milk, almond milk, powdered sugar and espresso powder until it starts to bubble around the edges.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until it is completely melted. If the chocolate isn’t melting all the way, you can return the pan to a low heat until the chocolate is completely melted.
Serve hot or warm with whipped cream if you want.
This recipe has not been tested for FODMAPs, but all ingredients are used in amounts compliant with the Monash University app.
