Hot chocolate is one of my top five comfort beverages. I enjoy a hot cup of hot chocolate most on a cold day. I love the creamy taste and texture of a gourmet hot chocolate made with high-quality coco and just a bit of sweetener. Here is my version of simple, gourmet primal friendly hot chocolate.
1 1/4 c (10 oz) almond milk (or 5 oz organic half-n-half and 5 oz filtered water)
2 tbs organic raw coco powder
1 tbs organic coconut sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint flavor (optional)
Homemade whipping cream (optional)
- Heat almond milk or half-n-half and water in a saucepan.
- Add organic raw coco powder, organic coconut sugar, and peppermint flavor (if you're using peppermint).
- Whisk until all ingredients are combined. Continue heating for about 4-5 minutes or until simmering.
- Pour into a mug, top with homemade whipping cream and enjoy!
