Yesterday was National Cocoa Day, and although I didn’t know that was a “thing” I am always happy to sit down and enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
Here is my go-to recipe for an aromatically spiced hot chocolate.
Aromatic Spice Cocoa Love
8 ounces of organic almond or coconut milk
1-2 heaping tablespoons of organic, fair trade cocoa powder or chocolate sauce
1/8-1/4 teaspoon organic powdered cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon organic powdered nutmeg
1 teaspoon dried organic rose petals
Warm the almond milk and stir in cocoa powder, cinnamon and nutmeg until milk powders are well blended. Turn off heat and steep rose petals for a couple of minutes. Strain out petals and pour cocoa into your favorite mug. Extra points for dunking in your favorite cookie!
For the love of plants,
when energy flows, wellness grows
