There is something about hot chocolate on a cold winter day. We got 27.5 inches of snow this past weekend and the kids have been begging for hot chocolate at least three times a day. Yes, you read that correctly, 27.5. School was cancelled today and is already cancelled for tomorrow. There is so much snow there is no where to put it. Most side streets are down to one lane and cars keep getting stuck everywhere. In light of all the snow (and snow day number two) I finally caved and made myself some hot chocolate.
This is the best dairy free hot chocolate I’ve ever tried. I’m doing the turtle fuel cycle in the new thm book so I’m back to dairy free for at least this week and probably next. I lose weight very very slowly if I eat dairy daily.
Anyway, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect healthy comfort beverage and this is the winner. It is sweet, frothy, chocolatey, and creamy while being dairy and sugar free. This is a THM S.

3 T. cocoa powder
12 oz. almond milk
1 T. coconut oil (I use refined in this recipe to avoid a coconut taste)
Tiny pinch of salt
1. In a small saucepan heat the sweetener over medium low heat until until is melted.
2. Whisk in the cocoa powder and the almond milk. When smooth add the salt and coconut oil and whisk until it comes to a simmer.
Tip: Just don’t be overzealous like I was and burn your tongue with your eagerness to taste it. As every fast food hot beverage cup says “Caution: Contains Hot Liquid.”
