It may be April, but here in Colorado its a snow day. I love snow, as long as I don't have to leave the house. Instead of loving snow, perhaps I love all the accoutrements...sitting in front of the fireplace with a blanket, books and a cup of cocoa. No chemical laden instant packet here, although its just as quick. This non-dairy, antioxidant rich cocoa takes minutes to make and is as delicious as it is chock full of healthy goodness. Cocoa and spices are full of antioxidants, and the nut milk and coconut butter add some healthy fat.
Ingredients per serving:
1 c almond, coconut or cashew milk
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
1 heaping tablespoon coconut butter
1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
pinch of salt
chipotle chili powder
Place all ingredients in small pot on stove, bring to a boil, whisking. Lower heat and whisk until all ingredients are melted, blended and creamy.
Can top with whipped coconut cream, cacao nibs and a sprinkling of chili powder.
You shouldn't have to choose between healthy and yummy. I focus on showing you how you can have both, utilizing functional ingredients that keep you at your best!
