This is all that is needed as a dessert or for breakfast
175mls of milk of choice,
50gs of Dark Chocolate, as dark as possible to get as much of the cacao as possible.
Ideally this is whole bean chocolate, where the bean has not been seperated in cacao butter and cacao powder. You want as much of the cacao butter as possible for flavour and natural thickness.
The butter also carries the health benefits of Cacao into the body.
If you go really dark, use additional sweetner such as maple syrup or honey to taste!
-Heat the milk until steam starts to rise
-Add the chocolate and any additions and whisk
-Then allow the hot chocolate to rapidly bubble
-Stay with this until the moment of alchemy takes place and the hot
chocolate becomes thick. This is truly a wonderful moment.
Find somewhere quite to be with this Divine drink that will nourhsh your heart and soul!
Top with cream or coconut cream
1 Tabsp of Nut Butter of choice
1 tsp of Maca
Add the above into the hot milk with the chocolate and allow to boil
Place in blender and blend until smooth
This is a high protein, Cacao enriched drink that is also decadent
This is what my teenagers drink in the winter, every morning as breakfast.
We brew it up and they drink it on the bus to school, making everyone envious.
High Quality Chilli powder
And for the evenings a dash of:
Baileys / Grand Marnier or your favourite liquer
