Ingredients

– 1 x 400ml coconut milk
– 1 cup (250ml) purified water
– 2 Tbsp cacao
– 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
– pinch of pink himalayan salt
– 1 Tbsp almond butter, optional (see Note)

Method

1. Place all ingredients into a small pot, whisk and place onto a medium- high heat.
2. Simmer for 2 minutes.
3. Serve at this stage OR pour the hot chocolate into a jug blender and blend for 30 seconds. This aerates the hot choc, which makes is very light and fluffy, which woks so well with its rich creaminess.

Note: I only add the almond butter if  I want to stay fuller for longer or need a little extra energy, so if you are just having your hot choc as a little treat, then i would suggest leaving out the almond butter.
