Velvety & Supercharged Hot Cacao

2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of raw cacao
  • 2 teaspoons of arrowroot starch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • coconut sugar or maple syrup to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of MCT oil

 

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together the cacao powder, starch, and salt in a small bowl or measuring cup.
  2. Heat the milk & vanilla in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until steaming.
  3. Add a couple tablespoons of the hot milk to the cacao mixture and whisk until smooth. This will help you avoid clumps of cocoa in your hot chocolate.
  4. Pour the cacao mixture into the milk pan, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. It will thicken slightly in this time.
  5. Remove from heat, stir in MCT oil and let sit for 5-10 minutes so it lowers to a drinkable temperature. Add in coconut sugar or maple syrup to reach desired taste.

Sit back & enjoy!
