Winter Warmer Hot Chocolate

Winter Warmer Hot Chocolate

Tuesday 18th October 2016

As we are now heading into the winter months, it is turning cold enough outside for us to start hankering after the warm comfort of a mug of hot chocolate. However with most commercial hot chocolate being crammed full of refined sugar (up to 69.5g of sugar in a large flavoured hot choc at one high street coffee shop) or artificial sweeteners, flavourings and preservatives etc etc etc, it seems only sensible that I should pass on a recipe that gives you all the satisfaction of your usual hot chocolate but with none of the guilt. So here it is................

* Just to note that the raw cacao is packed full of magnesium which aids restful sleep and relaxation so this is a great evening drink.

Of course hot chocolate is for sharing so this recipe makes 2 mugs;

  • 2 mugs coconut or almond milk
  • 2 heaped dessert spoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 dessert spoon honey, coconut blossom syrup or maple syrup

Whisk all ingredients together over a low heat until fully combined. Pour, serve, and enjoy.
