Clean Eats: Creamy Hot Chocolate

The weather has been rather unpredictable these days, it’s sunny for a bit and the next minute, rain!  All you want is to be wrapped in your duvet with a cup of hot chocolate when it’s so chilly outside. I like my hot chocolate thick and creamy, almost like melted chocolate in your mouth. (however i don’t like it being overly sweet).

This is also a prefect drink for revising at night! You would get the energy from the sugary factors, blind yourself in your books and notes. And afterwards you will be sleeping like a baby.

So here is a new found love for hot chocolate that has less sugar as well!

Ingredients

– 250ml Coconut Milk
– 100 ml Almond Milk
– 2 Tbsp 100% Cocoa
– 2 Tbsp Agave Nectar or Honey
– 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Directions

1.  Pour the coconut milk and almond milk into a pot and turn on medium low. Heat until warm. (NEVER turn the heat all the way up on High. Medium high should be the highest you go. This should simmer rather than boil)
2. Add in Cocoa Powder and start stirring and to avoid it burning on the bottom of your pot.
3. When everything is melted and nicely combined, add in vanilla extract and add in agave or honey to taste ( the above measurement was what i added as I don’t like having it sweet and wanted that dark chocolatey taste. but you can adjust)
4. Remove from heat and pour into your cup
5. Sprinkle cinnamon if desired

It tastes so good and creamy! I also like the tiny hint of coconut with the chocolate.

Lots of Love

  1. Hot chocolate is one of my downfalls when trying to eat healthily! I absolutely love it. This recipe looks amazing and I love that it incorporates almond milk – another of my favourite things! I will definitely be trying it out :) x
