Superfood Cacao Hot Chocolate

One of my nightly drinks is this superfood cacao hot chocolate. I’m always craving hot chocolate when it’s cold outside. I don’t always like going out to get hot chocolate because it’s usually just made with syrup and way too sweet. Also, the powdered hot cocoa you buy at the store is just filled with sugar. Homemade hot chocolate is super easy, delicious, and way healthier. The superfood cacao has many health benefits like iron, magnesium, calcium, and a ton of antioxidants. I made this with almond milk and it’s so yummy. Superfood Cacao Hot ChocolateSuperfood Cacao Hot ChocolateSuperfood Cacao Hot ChocolateSuperfood Cacao Hot Chocolate 

2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
2 Tbsp cacao powder
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup (add to taste)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Heat the almond milk in a small pot on medium low heat. Bring to a simmer and turn off the heat. Whisk in the cacao powder, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined and there are no clumps.

Taste and see if you want it more sweet or less. I like my hot chocolate on the darker side.

Enjoy!
