Comforting Hot Cacao

Hot Cacao Recipe

Okay. I know, I know, I know, I said I wouldn't post any food or drink recipes.. but this one, I just couldn't resist! The perfect pick-me-up for a cold, late afternoon in December, hot cacao was exactly what I needed today to lift my spirits...and lift my spirits, it did! This recipe, which I adapted from Valentina Zelyaeva's blog (who has tons of great juice and smoothie recipes) was WAY too good to keep all to myself.




What you'll need: 
1 Cup Almond Milk
1 Tbs Raw Cacao Powder
2 Tbs Raw Honey
1 Pinch of Salt
1 Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (only if you want to add some kick, otherwise I'd add Cinnamon instead)

Directions: 
Place all ingredients in a sauce pan. Place on the stove over a low fire. Stir occasionally. Heat until warm (don't boil!) then pour into mug and enjoy!
