Happy Holidays, Sunshine!
There is nothing better than hot chocolate to warm you up during the Holiday season.
The following recipes are my favorite to sip on while watching Christmas movies & baking cookies.
Not only does Cacao make this Peppermint Hot Chocolate delicious and rich in flavor, but Cacao Powder is a superfood for the brain and the heart. Cacao is high in antioxidants and nutrients like Iron, Magnesium, & Zinc.
-1&1/2 Tablespoons Cacao Powder
-1 Cup(8 oz.) Cashewmilk, or Homemade Oatmilk)
-1/2 Cup(4 oz.) Peppermint Tea
(1 Peppermint Tea Bag steeped in 4oz. Water for 5 Minutes)
-Drops of Stevia or preferred sweetener
-Coconut or Almondmilk Whipped Cream
Heat Cashewmilk over stove until piping hot. Add in the Cacao, Stevia, and Peppermint Tea.
Stir well until completely smooth and there are no Cacao clumps.
Pour into a glass or mug and top with desired toppings!
For an even Easier Peppermint Hot Cacao:
-10 oz. Hot Water
-1 Packet of Four Sigmatic Mushroom Hot Cacao Mix
-1 Packet of Yogi Peppermint Tea
Heat 10 oz. Of Water and let the Peppermint tea bag steep for 5 Minutes, then add in the packet of Four Sigmatic Hot Cacao mix and stir well.
Top with Coconut Whipped cream and crushed Peppermint if desired.
Note: this version is a lot less creamy, but still delicious, and has a hint of cinnamon from the Four Sigmatic Cacao Mix.
