For 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.
