I’m currently sitting in my studio apartment (alongside Mr. Henderson of course), we’re bundled up in fleece blankets, both with our computers on our laps and sipping big mugs of this dairy-free hot chocolate. And it’s my first hot chocolate in almost two years. Can you believe that? Two years!
Living in Vermont has its perks. Yes it’s cold, gray, snowy and miserable for those of us who love hot, sunny weather, but it affords us the opportunity to consume an obscene amount hot beverages. And for me that’s perfect – I’m pretty much tea-obsessed (even in the summer).
But sometimes tea just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I want something sweet. Something chocolatey. Something that reminds me of Christmas. Sounds like a hot chocolate craving, doesn’t it?
This dairy-free hot chocolate (which also happens to be refined sugar-free and fairly low-calorie) was the perfect drink to cure my cold winter blues.
- 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1½ teaspoons stevia powder
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- Heat the almond milk over medium heat in a small sauce pan until steaming, not boiling. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and let cook for 3 - 5 minutes.
- Serve immediately.
