If you enjoy chocolate, there is nothing like hot cocoa to warm up! This is a good option for those of you who need to avoid dairy products. What I like best about this recipe is that it’s an easy way to ingest coconut oil which is a great brain food and an excellent source of calories that helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Try different spices–vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, or cardamom if you wish to experiment. And, of course, it’s best to sweeten with stevia.
For 1 serving:
1 tsp. cocoa powder–organic, raw is best
1 heaping tsp. coconut oil–organic, raw is best
1/4 cup coconut milk–organic Native Forest lite in cans is best
3/4 cup boiling water
stevia extract to taste
any spice mentioned above is optional
Put all ingredients except boiling water in a mug. Pour boiling water in and stir until coconut oil melts. Give an occasional stir while sipping to keep the oil dispersed. Let me know what you think!
