Hot Cocoa (Honey Sweetened)

Hot Cocoa

I love when the weather gets cold out and I can drink all my favorite warm drinks.  I’m not a coffee drinker, but I love a big mug of coconut creamer tea (similar to a chai tea latte).  I also love creamy rich hot cocoa.  I have tried many recipes over the years to avoid all the weird ingredients in the store bought ones and finally found one I like.  I have tweaked this one just slightly to come up with this healthy and delicious cocoa:

Hot Cocoa (serves 2-3)

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 Tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium sauce pan heat your milk (slowly so it doesn’t burn).  In a seperate container (I rinse out and reuse the measuring cup I used for my milk), mix the rest of the ingredients until a chocolate syrup forms.  Add the syrup to the warm milk and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
