Almond Hot Chocolate
Who wouldn’t love a good hot chocolate especially on a cold wintry day? Dark chocolate is good for diabetics, especially when made with almond milk, and a wonderful comfort beverage but in most cases, comes heavily sweetened. Here, I’ve used Dutch cocoa for a deeper flavour.
2 tablespoons Dutch cocoa
2 cups almond milk or coconut milk
½ teaspoon vanilla essence or angostura bitters
¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ teaspoon sea salt
- Combine all ingredients in a pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
- Stir with a whisk to make sure the mixture is smooth.
- Serve hot.
