As you might have noticed we not only love our healthy smoothies, but hot beverages are our thing to! It might be a special tea or a nice Pumpkin Almond Latte, but a big, comforting filled-to-the-top mug of hot cocoa has got to be in our Top 5 of Hot Beverages We Love. Give us anything chocolate and we will be your friend, but the rich taste of a perfect Classic Hot Cocoa on a cold day will melt our hearts. Sounds so melodramatic right, but seriously though, we heart this drink!
List of Ingredients:
- 1 oz (+-30 grams) of dark Chocolate
- ½ tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 cup (Almond) Milk
- pinch of Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Honey
How to Prepare:
Pour the (almond) milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and whisk in the chocolate, cocoa powder, honey and cinnamon. Heat for 5 minutes whisking occasionally, until the chocolate is melted. Pour into your favorite mug and if you feel like doing the deluxe version, add some whipped cream and/or mini marshmallows. Enjoy!!
