Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk 300 grams
  • 1/2 cup (heaping) bittersweet chocolate chips (look for vegan chocolate chips if you are vegan) I use ghiradelli (70 grams)
  • 2 tsp matcha green tea powder

For the whipped coconut cream

  • 1 can coconut cream, 13 oz.
  • 2 tsp maple syrup


  • Heat the coconut milk over medium heat in a saucepan, whisking occasionally.
  • Whisk in matcha green tea powder until it's incorporated. If there are still some tiny lumps, don't worry, just get it as smooth as possible. The liquid will be somewhat frothy.
  • Whisk in the chocolate chips until the mixture is nice and smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside.

For the whipped coconut cream:

  • Open the can of coconut cream and scoop out the cream and add to a large bowl. There may be some liquid in the bottom, and if so, don't add the liquid to the bowl to ensure the coconut cream will thicken when whipped.
  • With an electric beater or stand mixer, beat the coconut cream until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add the maple syrup and whip again until incorporated.
  • Pour the hot chocolate mixture into tea cups and top with coconut cream and a sprinkle of more matcha powder.
