2cupsoat milkextra creamy
¼cup cocoa powder
Do not stir or mix the can of coconut milk. Remove the top creamy portion to use. Discard the rest.
Add the coconut cream, oat milk, and prepared coffee to the inner liner of an Instant Pot.
Mix together the cocoa powder and sugar. Sift into the milk/cream mixture, making sure all of the little balls of cocoa powder have been broken up.
Close the Instant Pot lid and set the vent to closed or sealed.
Set the Instant Pot to 2 minutes at high pressure. It will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure.
After the pressure cooker has come to pressure and counted down, allow for a 5 minute natural relase.
Turn of the Intstant pot and continue carefully doing a quick release until the pressure cooker has fully released it's pressure and the pin has dropped.
Carefully open and stir in the vanilla and peppermint.
You may need to whisk a bit to remove any lumps of cocoa. If you have properly sifted and stirred the dry ingredients, you should not have to whisk much.
Top with whipped coconut topping if desired, bits of peppermint candy cane, and dairy-free chocolate chips.
Extra creamy oat milk is my plant milk of choice. You can you any unsweetened plant milk you'd like. Use the top creamy part from the can of coconut milk. Do not stir or mix before removing the coconut cream. You will remove 1 to 1 1/2 cups of coconut cream to use. Discard the clear coconut water. The time to come to pressure is included in the prep time. My preference for coffee would be brewed coffee. Instant coffee works as well too.
