Ultimate hot chocolate

Warm drinks in winter are honestly my best friend.
Hot chocolate is just unbeatable and I have cultivated some amazing vegan combinations.
Starting with a simple superfood base formula:

Ingredients:
1 cup coconut milk
1 TBSP raw cacao powder
a pinch of cinnamon
a few drops of vanilla extract
a pinch of himalayan pink salt
Stevia

Simply whisk all the ingredients together whilst heating in a saucepan on the stove top.

Sea salt and dark chocolate is a great combo so experiment with adding a little more himalayan sea salt for extra minerals.

One of my favourite additions to hot chocolate has to be spicy cayenne pepper, add in a tiny bit at a time until you reach your heat threshold. I almost don’t have one these days. For a super nurturing, detoxifying and comforting drink.

We have been blessed recently with abundant citrus trees around my neighbourhood, beautiful mandarins which I have used for all sorts of things including body scrubs and massage oils to raw deserts and now hot chocolate. Simply grate in a little orange or mandarin zest and a pinch of ginger powder for a luxurious beverage.

I almost forgot how much I loved dark chocolate and ginger until recently! Grated fresh ginger plus a pinch of ginger powder add a beautiful flavour and depth to the rich cacao that is both soothing and anti-inflammatory for your system.
