Default Cocoa question

Is there a way of incorporating heavy cream and coconut oil in cocoa to make a great hot chocolate drink without a greasy/oily texture?

If you warm up the heavy cream, above 75, add a little coconut oil, shake in a closed jar you may get some to stay in solution

Would a tablespoon of coconut oil be too much? The first and only time I made cocoa since diagnosis, I used 1 Tbs each of cocoa, heavy cream and coconut oil and added hot water and a packet of stevia
Thank you for the suggestion above.

When I make a hot drink with coconut oil, I froth it with a whisk. I put the whisk in the cup, place hands, palms together, over the handle and slide my hands back and forth, which makes the whisk twirl.

This keeps the oil in solution for about 10 minutes, more than enough time to enjoy it. And I really like the froth.

You could also just buy some Kerigold butter made from grass feed cows.
