Whether you're ice skating or snowboarding in the cold or sitting near a crackling fireplace, you'll enjoy a rich, cozy cup of the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted! Like a warm fire, hot cocoa warms you from the inside out, and help make cold winters bearable.
What's not to love about these wholesome ingredients? This creamy, rich blend will make a hot chocolate lover out of everyone, so double or triple the recipe. To enjoy year round, make a glass of chocolate milk instead of hot chocolate.
The Greatest Hot Chocolate Ever Recipe
Creamy, rich, chocolaty goodness
Yield: 2 cups
2 cups your choice of non-dairy milk, (almond, coconut) or dairy cream
2 tablespoons organic cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon stevia powder or desired sweetener, to taste
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla whey protein powder
Note: (If you use heavy cream in this recipe, or full-fat coconut milk from a can, you can use a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract instead of protein powder.)
Heat milk in a saucepan until hot, but not boiling. Add hot milk and remaining ingredients to a Vitamix or blender. Affix lid and mix until smooth. Pour into mugs and let cool slightly before sipping.
Enjoy this luscious treat!
