It’s time to start nestling in and finding ways to get cozy. I especially love to cuddle up with a warm blanket, a good book and a cup of hot chocolate on an autumn rainy night.

This delicious chocolatey treat is something that will trick your taste buds into thinking you are drinking something a lot more indulgent than what you really are. By using stevia and agave instead of sugar, and almond milk instead of a dairy milk, you will be able to indulge in a rich drink with fewer calories and fat, but which tastes just as rich and succulent. Customize your drink by adding your favorite essential oil(s) for your preferred flavor.

Hot Chocolate flavored with essential oils

Ingredients:

1 cup water

5 teaspoons cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia or 1 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia (amount of sweetener can be adjusted to taste).

1 to 2 tablespoons sugar or agave (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

3 cups almond milk

Essential Oil Flavoring Options:

Cinnamon bark, lavender, wild orange, or peppermint.

Directions: 

Heat water, cocoa powder, and sweetener on stove until ingredients are smooth. Add vanilla and milk and bring to a simmer. Pour into your favorite mug. Introduce flavor by swirling a toothpick dipped in your favorite essential oil.

Makes 3-4 servings.
