Hot chocolate doesn't have to be an “unhealthy” treat. When made right, it’s delicious, rich and full of all the superfood benefits you want your child (or you) to have every day. No milk or processed chocolate in this one!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups boiling hot water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (can substitute with any other milk)
  • 1 tsp organic coconut oil
  • 2 tsp Blue Stripes Whole Cacao Bean Powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp raw honey or 100% maple syrup
  • Optional - spoil yourself with healthy whipped cream: 1 can coconut milk, refrigerated overnight; 1 tsp cacao fruit sugar (can substitute with coconut sugar or organic brown sugar), 3 tbsp Blue Stripes chocolate hazelnut spread

Directions

1. Take your favorite mug and pour the hot water in.

2. Add the almond milk and coconut oil followed by the Whole Cacao Bean Powder and stir.

3. Add the vanilla extract, raw honey and mix.

4. To make the whipped cream: Refrigerate a can of coconut milk overnight. The next day, open the can and take only the fat from the top and leave the liquid behind.
