I think it’s about time we pour something warm down our throats, it’s freakin cold outside. Yes, I know what you RAW folks are sayin’…“you are heating the almond milk and so this ain’t RAW gurrrl!”…well, yes, BUT you are just heating the milk a wee bit in order to infuse the flavors and everything else is raw so…it’s all about balance…right… :)

    You should put a question mark after raw (raw?) because it is not raw. It is raw?

    Yes this is raw…? The almond milk i use is homemade and raw, so is the agave, the cacao and the chocolate…the only thing (as i mentioned above) is the heating of the almond milk SO if you wanna get militant RAW you can use a thermometer so the temperature of the milk doesn’t go above 110 degrees…

    There really is little else out there better than a warm raw cacao drink on a cold winter’s eve. I used to make a similar recipe all the time last year and haven’t done up a batch of hot chocolate yet this year. It’s time to change that! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Aria made this the other day.. so good. It’s been chilly here over the holidays and it is nice to have something warm. But it’s the chocolate which hits the spot for me.
