It is raining today and this cold change has got me craving a warm hot chocolate ~ though not just any kind of hot chocolate from a café will do. I want something real, smooth, creamy and chocolaty!
I got the inspiration while I was out and about picking something up from the post office… I could have orderd a hot choc from the local café and I didn’t… I wanted to alcehmise my own delicious intuitive brew at home so I asked my hot choc urge to be patient until I got home and this is what I came up with – and it’s deeelicious, scrumptious, smooth, creamy, chocolatey and naturally sweet (with love!) – nothing else added!
Enjoy this cosy, warming, sugar-free, beverage to fulfil your secret (or not so secret) rainy day hot choc fantasies!
You will need:
- 1 cup of your choice of milk (coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk or unhomogenised dairy)
- 1 tbsp dark carob powder
- 1 tsp raw cacao powder
- ½ tsp Ceylon cinnamon powder
- Your juicy, creative hot chocalicious love!
To Brew: Pour your milk into a pot and add carob, cacao and cinnamon. Stir with a small whisk to blend powders together nicely or use a spoon or fork. Bring to a gently bubbling boil until your chocy drink gets a little frothy (frothy is good!) then turn it off, find your favourite mug, get your blanky, a relaxing – sumptuous song to listen to (like Sade) and sit… and sip… and drink your uber smooth, creamy, wholesome and real divine home made hot choc and think of how fun it was to make your own brew! Yum!
