Vegan Spiced Hot Chocolate

Best news ever: this version of the every-so-popular hot chocolate is actually good for you! Free of dairy, sugar and other harmful ingredients, this hot chocolate is made with raw cacao, warming spices, almond milk and energizing maca powder. I would say it’s the perfect hot drink to nourish yourself on a cold day.

Ingredients (serves 2):

–       almond milk 4 cups

–       raw cocao powder, 3 tbsp

–       maca powder 1 tsp

–       cinnamon powder 1 tsp

–       chilli powder ½ tsp

–       Natural sweetener of your choice

Method:

Slowly warm up all the ingredients except the sweetener in a small pot. I actually blend the ingredients in a blender first, just to make sure it’s stirred well.

In order to keep all nutrients alive, don’t cook the hot chocolate, but just heat it to drinking temperature.

Add some sweetener of your choice, like raw honey or maple syrup.

Enjoy and warm up!
