It's supposed to get really cold this weekend - perfect for hot chocolate. Although, when is it NOT hot chocolate weather?!
One of my favorite things about hot chocolate is you can make it a nutrient dense indulgence just by tweaking some of the ingredients.
I'm asked a lot about healthier hot chocolate recipes, so here is the one I use.
I prefer this "grown up" creamier version to the watered down stuff I was used to. I also like a little bonus spice in mine. Cayenne pepper does the trick :)
- 2 cups full fat canned coconut milk (look out for preservatives)
- Drizzle of vanilla
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
- 2 Tbls maple syrup
- 1 cup water
1.) Combine all of the ingredients over medium heat. Don’t allow to come to a boil.
2.) Whisk until well combined and serve :)
