Decadent Warm Cacao or Carob Drink
I may have posted this last winter but i just received an email asking for a substitute for kids and adults for the typical hot chocolate. i was reminded of my favorite warm cozy healthy hot cacao or carob treat.
Drink this amazingly creamy treat on a cold dark night when you just need a sweet chocolate fix. You will not only feel satisfied but you will have provided your body with an abundance of nutrients!!! ENJOY!!!!
1 cup almond milk
1 or 2 teaspoon raw almond butter (makes it creamy)
honey or agave nectar to taste (about a teaspoon)
1 tbsp raw carob or cacao powder
1 thin slice of fresh ginger, chopped (optional)
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 pinch of grated nutmeg
1 dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until frothy. Place in pot on stove and warm lightly.
Drink is slowly and mindfully!!!
I actually have a quiet house to myself in the middle of the afternoon. Mason is at school and owen is napping. i'm sitting here drinking a warm tea doing the work i love. It's another blissful day!!
