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… :)
For the Recipe
4 cups homemade almond milk
2 cinnamon sticks
1 inch slice fresh ginger
1 vanilla bean, sliced and scrape seeds out
¼ cup unsweetened cacoa powder
2 ounces raw dark chocolate, finely chopped
4 to 6 TB agave
Pinch sea salt
Pinch of cayenne (optional)
1. Bring milk, scraped vanilla bean seeds/pod, cinnamon stick and ginger to almost a boil; cover and turn off heat for 20 minutes.
2. Remove cinnamon stick, vanilla pod and ginger.
3. Whisk in cacoa, chocolate, agave, salt and cayenne (if using) until frothy.
