My son has been asking me for a long time to make him some hot chocolate. One cold day, while my children were playing in the backyard, I made the coconut hot chocolate for them to warm up with when they came inside. Both my children loved drinking it and since then I make the coconut hot chocolate frequently.

Is there a better drink to keep you warm when you are out playing in the snow or to give you energy and make you happy when you are feeling down?
