How to make Cacao Hot Chocolate

It was earlier this year that I first heard about Cacao. You read right, I am not talking about conventional Cocoa, I scoured Tesco's, up and down each and every aisle trying to locate this mysterious ingredient. At first I thought that it was just a spelling mistake, and when I couldn't find the product in Tesco..I opted for just using Cocoa. Google had confirmed that Cacao was indeed a real substance, and I now know that cacao powder is a healthy alternative to conventional over-processed “cocoa” used for baking or hot chocolate! 

I use Cacao for so many different, and tasty treats. Just because I have really cleaned up how I eat, it doesn't mean that I don't have a sweet tooth or that I completely take chocolate out of the equation. One of the best discoveries I made was Cacao Hot Chocolate. It was just an idea that popped into my head and only required a few ingredients.

What you will need...

- A pan

-  1 teaspoon of Cacao Powder

-  1 mug of Coconut or Almond Milk 
(I usually opt for Coconut but both are equally as delicious!)

- Honey or Agave Syrup (until sweet enough)

- A mug (to enjoy your hot chocolate!)

How to prepare your warming (tasty!) treat...

- Take your pan and add a teaspoon of Cacao Powder. 

- Pour a mug of Almond or Coconut Milk into the pan and heat through (but don't boil!) stirring continuously. 

- Add your Honey or Agave Syrup until it's sweet enough for your personal taste.

- Before it boils, take it off the stove and pour it into your mug. Boiling Cacao kills off all of it's goodness!
