The weather has started to become spring, but some things like chocolate are never out of season.
I spent all winter drinking drinks, especially when I was going home from a show, to calm down and rest my throat before I slept.
The following is one of my favorite hot chocolate recipes because although it is a hygiene version of the beverage, is incredibly tasty and rich in texture.
This is due, on the one hand, to almond butter, which gives both aroma and "body" to drink and organic honey, which is hygienic and viscous and contributes to the unlikely end result!
I have always believed that watching your diet does not mean you should be deprived of the taste and this recipe is the living example.
For 1 hot chocolate mug you will need:
- 1 cup of almond milk (about 250-300 ml)
- 2 and cocoa (uncooked and without added sugars)
- 1 1 / 2 and other organic honey
- 1 1 / 2 and so on almond butter
- 1 / 2 or Cinnamon Cinnamon or 1 Cinnamon Stick (if you want it to be less intense)
In a saucepan add all the ingredients and in moderate heat begin to heat the mixture. Stir well until the almond butter melts and does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
Take the pan off the heat before it comes to boil and enjoy your drink warm!
- If you are sensitive to caffeine, it is best not to consume it at night as there is a small amount of caffeine in the cacao.
- Prefer to warm the beverage to the kitchen eye and not to the microwave that raises too much temperature and does not allow you to stir the ingredients while they are warming up.
- You can replace the almond milk with a normal one if you wish, the result will be very close to taste.
- Milk and almond butter are rich in plant proteins and good vegetable fats and cocoa has antioxidants. Combined with organic honey that is full of vitamins, an unlikely nutritional combination is created that gives the body the energy it needs!
- If you are a vegan, instead of honey use agave syrup or dill that is of plant origin.
I'm sure you will enjoy the result!
