  7. Where in the world did you get powdered coconut milk? This looks amazeballs! As a local gal myself, would be great to know where you got this sweet sounding nectar from???

    1. You can buy it online, in Asian food stores around North End Road and in the ‘world foods’ aisle of supermarkets (like Tesco has it). I buy the Maggi brand – it’s a yellow box
      It’s amazing!

  8. Coconut milk powder sounds amazing! Where did you find it? I’m slightly lactose intolerant and I LOVE coconut, so it just sounds perfect!

    1. Excuse the copy & paste job going on here haha:

    I also want to know where you found coconut milk powder! I try to always have some home made hot cocoa mix in the cupboard for my husband’s much-loved mochas. The addition of coconut has really struck my fancy.

    And thanks for the heads up on the cocoa recipe – I’m a big cocoa fan so very excited about this one πŸ™‚

  11. Just wanted to let you know (if you didn’t already) that this recipe is posted on Yahoo right now! I recognized the wooden table, and when I checked out the article they got it from the Food52.com post. Congrats on all the exciting stuff happening for you right now!

  12. Along with Mia, I was coming to tell you I saw this on Yahoo and immediately recognized your beautiful photographs. Aren’t you just all kinds of awesome? πŸ˜‰

  13. mmmm hot cocoa! It’s never going to stop being cold in the UK, genuinely think making a jar and carrying it around as a handbag essential is the only way to survive until the sun ever wants to come out again! Congrats on the awards, how exciting! πŸ™‚
