HBK Hot Chocolate

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)


  1. Heat almond milk or half-n-half and water in a saucepan.
  2. Add organic raw coco powder, organic coconut sugar, and peppermint flavor (if you're using peppermint).
  3. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.  Continue heating for about 4-5 minutes or until simmering.
  4. Pour into a mug, top with homemade whipping cream and enjoy!
