hot-cocoa-16213387_lFor cen­turies, hot cocoa has been a com­fort­ing drink, great for rainy days, sip­ping after mak­ing the best snow­man on your street, shar­ing with friends and fam­ily or enjoy­ing in soli­tude. Cocoa con­tains less fat than most hot choco­lates and is high in antioxidants.

1 cup milk (nut milk or organic unprocessed milk)
1 1/2 to 2 table­spoons cocoa pow­der
1/2 tea­spoon vanilla extract
Agave syrup, maple syrup or ste­via to taste
Dash of salt

Optional:  Sprin­kle of cin­na­mon
For the Hot Hot Mayan Ver­sion:  Sprin­kle with cayenne pepper

Heat your milk and ingre­di­ents in a non-aluminum and non-teflon pot on the stove and never in a microwave.
