There’s a chill in the air. It’s hot chocolate weather. Or cocoa…whatever you call it, it’s warm and soothing. A mugful of love!
This hot chocolate is made with almond milk, so it’s dairy free. Instead of regular cocoa (which would work just fine in this recipe), I used cacao powder. No, that’s not a type. CACAO powder is made of the unroasted cacao bean, whereas COCOA powder is made from the roasted beans. Raw cacao powder is high in antioxidants, fiber and lots of vitamins and minerals. It’s a pretty simple substitution for big nutritional gain!
Thankfully, my kids can’t tell the difference. They were just thrilled to be drinking something chocolately out of a fancy mug!
Witness the chocolate mustache.
Make a batch of this and share with your loves!
