Paleo Hot Chocolate Recipe

With the cold weather here, I find myself reaching for more warm beverages. There is something about wrapping my hands around a coffee mug, that I just find so calming & grounding.


Here at the bakery we had plans to make hot chocolate bombs this season, (and it isn't out of the question - we'll still try!!), but I thought I'd share a yummy paleo hot chocolate recipe to get you started this holiday season.

What you need:

  • 1 cup of milk (I like unsweetened almond milk, my kids use goat milk - but your favourite milk will do)

  • 1 tbsp raw cocao powder

  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup

  • optional: splash of vanilla (cuz doesn't vanilla make everything better?)

Directions:

  1. Combine everything in a small saucepan and cook over medium

  2. Stir/whisk occasionally until hot

  3. Pour into mug and enjoy!

  4. Optional: make it extra fun by topping with coconut whipped cream and chocolate shavings or sprinkles.
