Spicy Hot Chocolate

10 Jan

On a day like today, – 15C, – 26 C with the windchill and having an outdoorsy hobby…horses, you need something that can warm you up after spending 3 hours outside.

I love a nice hot chocolate, but I like a bit of spice in it, too.

By now, all my followers should know, I am the real ” Spice Girl”.

So here is the recipe, it is easy and the spices are usually in everyones spice drawer.

You need: ( for one cup)

1 cup of milk, full, almond, hemp or any other milk

3 tablespoons of organic raw cocoa powder ( any other good quality cocoa powder will do as well)

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

1/4 of a teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 of a teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch of nutmeg

1 handful of mini marshmallows (optional)

Heat the milk, add the cocoa powder, the maple syrup and the spices, let come to a  slow boil and pour over a handful of marshmallows and you have an immediate warm feeling .

For the really frozen people a little bit of Tequila will make this a true cold kicker.Image
