Although we have changed many things about our diet and lifestyle in the past 2 years, sometimes I still love a little something sweet and chocolate. With this hot chocolate, you can feel good knowing you are fueling your body with nutrition instead of chemicals. And since it’s so simple, you can make it any time of the day. Sometimes I need a little relaxation between lunch and dinner during my daughter’s nap or sometimes it’s a nice end of the night treat. So here is my 2 minute hot chocolate revisited.
- 2 cups full fat milk (we drink raw)
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (I like dark cocoa)
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Honey, sugar to sweeten to taste
- coconut cream for topping (optional)
Heat milk and rest of ingredients in saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly with a whisk until ingredients are well incorporated and you can see steam coming from the pan. Add sweetener at the end if desired. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
Alternatively, if you are in a hurry you can heat milk in a mug for about 1 minute. While heating place cocoa powder in a bowl and once milk is heated pour milk into the bowl and whisk milk and cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla together until well incorporated. Place back in microwave for another minute and add sweetener if desired.
