This is a super simple hot chocolate recipe, that is a little healthier & has a slightly more grown up flavour than the standard kind. It's currently on repeat in my kitchen especially for an afternoon pick me up . I tend to avoid it too late in the evening as cacao can be quite stimulating especially if you're really sensitive to caffeine like me. I've kept it really simple in terms of ingredients here but if you were feeling fancy you could add a dash of ground cinnamon or ground cardamon here or some medicinal mushrooms in powder form for their immune boosting qualities.
- 250ml oat milk*
- 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Pour the oat milk into a small saucepan and allow to heat gently over a low heat.
- Add the cacao powder & whisk vigorously.
- Add the maple syrup & whisk again.
- Once desired temperature is reached, give another little whisk before pouring into a mug. You could use a milk frother at this point for extra frothiness.
