Who doesn’t love a steamy cup of hot chocolate on a cold day? If you’ve never made your own from scratch, you’ll be amazed at how much better it tastes than what you get from a package or vending machine.
- In the bottom of a mug, mix one heaping teaspoon of organic cocoa powder with a little organic cold milk until you have a smooth paste. (I like Green & Black’s, or Dagoba Organic Cacao Powder).
- Fill the cup with hot milk, stirring well.
- Sweeten to taste with xylitol or stevia for a low-carb drink.
- To vary this basic recipe, try adding real vanilla extract, a little cinnamon, nutmeg, or a few drops of peppermint extract.
