In all things human

I LOVE my hot chocolate. Love it. Well, generally, I just love chocolate.

But if I’m going sugar-free, I don’t want to dive into a chocolate bar, no matter how dark.

So here’s my absolute favourite treat.

It’s oh so good. And it’s dairy free, sugar free, gluten free and even kinda healthy.

  • Unsweetened almond  milk – 1-2 cups in a saucepan (you can sub in hot water if you don’t want it too thick)
  • Raw organic cocoa – 2-4 tablespoons, depending on how thick you want it.
  • One stevia (don’t overdo it)
  • Play with the ratios of almond milk to hot water and cocoa amount – everyone is different in taste (I love mine really thick, but you may prefer a less dense version)

Whisk it all together in a saucepan in fairly high heat. Here’s the trick: bring to a boil. Let it start to froth up, but then quickly remove it from heat before it boils over. You have to be fast like grease lightening. I don’t know why, but it thickens it up nicely.

Let it cool to drinking temperature.

Enjoy!
