Hot chocolate drink, mmmmm

    Buy some unsweetened organic cocoa powder (NOT the pre-packaged hot chocolate garbage that is usually loaded with sugar, corn syrup solids, and hydrogenated oils) and mix a heaping Tbsp of organic cocoa with 10-12 oz of unsweetened almond milk (or if you prefer, you can use water, coffee, or a brewed unsweetened chocolate tea as the base liquid) in a small saucepan over very LOW heat.

    Using a whisk can help blend the cocoa evenly. I like to add 2-3 tbsp of coconut cream from a can to add more healthy fats (a source of MCTs) to this delicious healthy hot cocoa. You can find canned organic coconut milk in the Asian section of almost any grocery store. Add some stevia and a touch of vanilla extract while stirring over the low heat, and in a few minutes, you’ll have a delicious, creamy, frothy mug of healthy hot cocoa -- WITHOUT all of the sugar and trans fats that are loaded into a typical pre-packaged hot cocoa mix.

    You can also add a half scoop of your favorite vanilla or chocolate protein powder while stirring this mix together on the stove. In the final drink concoction, you’ll get the satisfying shot of chocolate along with muscle-feeding, fat-burning protein, a nice dose of fiber from the cocoa, healthy fats from the coconut cream (including powerful medium chain triglycerides), and a mega-shot of healthy antioxidants overall too!

    I use D-Ribose as a sweetener to make my mitochondria happy.

    I am sure it is definitely mmmmm superb! My own version is a bit simpler, but I also enjoy it very much. I brew a cup of green tea, add one tsp of organic raw cocoa powder, 1Tbsp coconut milk, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp of ghee and a serving of d-Ribose. Love it!

    D-ribose, in powdered form? Hmm, I take the capsules, didn't realise it was sweet although the capsules taste of vanilla a bit. I made porridge with coconut milk this morning, added in 2 tbs of oil and some cinnamon and a banana. Probably not ideal for breakfast but it tasted great :) As winter warmers go lol.

    sooperb, yes, there are quite a few brands of powdered D-ribose, but not all of them non-GMO unfortunately.

    caroline, I am so satisfied with one cup of my "creation" - and I don't even drink it while it is still hot....:)

    Hi Dali,

    How do you not scramble the eggs. Also the boiled water is separate from the cream and butter when heating, did I read that correctly.

    Thank you.
