Hello!

Dairy-Free Salted Hot Chocolate

Drinks

October 17, 2018

I’ve been a huge fan of chocolate since I was a child. When I was three years old, my mom found me in the kitchen crying because I couldn’t reach the chocolate chips. She rectified things by pulling out the ingredients to make hot chocolate. My cries were immediately hushed. Can you blame me? She pulled out the big guns.

Five or so years ago when I cut out refined sugar, I figured I also had to cut out my daily ritual of eating a square of dark chocolate as a mid-day pick me up. Until it dawned on me that raw cocoa powder exists, which has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries and is one of the highest sources of plant-based magnesium.

I created this Dairy-Free Salted Hot Chocolate when I was growing tired of golden milk. It’s chocolaty and creamy with just the barest hint of salt. Basically, it’s a dream come true in a mug. I prefer to not add any sweetener because I love the rich bitterness of the raw cocoa powder. It tastes like super good coffee. However, you can always add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Don’t forget the whipped coconut cream!
