The Rawest Hot Chocolate

The Rawest Hot Chocolate

Posted 2017-06-16 by noshnoshfollow
One of the best things about cooler weather - in our opinion - is getting to enjoy hot chocolate every day. But this is no crap-filled, store-bought, plastic-tasting hot chocolate. This is the real deal.

Raw cacao is rightly lauded for its impressive nutritional profile; it's loaded with antioxidants, magnesium, zinc and iron, all while keeping its delicious chocolate-y flavour.

Here we've put together the most stripped-back version of a raw hot choc, which you can freely consume guilt-free. If you do need to add one or two of the extras while you adjust to the naturally bitter taste, go ahead, simply opt for high quality ingredients.



Bowls 1
Minutes 5

Ingredients
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder, heaped
250ml water

Optional
For creaminess: use 1 cup warmed almond milk instead of water.

For sweetness: add 1-2 tsp maple syrup.

For spiciness: add pinch pink Himalayan salt and a pinch ground cinnamon.

For thickness: stir through 1-2 tsp raw peanut or almond butter.


Method
  • Boil the water in a kettle, then set aside for 3-5 minutes or until slightly cooled.



  • Place the cacao in your favourite mug or cup, then pour over the water and mix well.



  • Add any extras you wish, and enjoy while warm.
