Clean Hot Cocoa

by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016

Even holding a cup of cocoa seems to warm you on a cold winter’s day. Unfortunately, the store-bought packets can be loaded with added sugar, corn syrup and artificial flavors. Though this cleaned-up version isn’t made in the microwave, your house will fill with the scent of something sweet. And the only thing you’ll need to worry about is the wholesomeness of raw cacao, pure vanilla and unsweetened almond milk enveloping you at first sip.

Calories per serving: 52


1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. raw cacao
1/4 tsp. vanilla
20 drops chocolate-flavored stevia


1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil.
2. Add raw cacao and vanilla, until thoroughly mixed.
3. Pour in milk. I used a milk frother and added the fluffy cream at the end, but you can add it straight to the saucepan if you’re not using a frother.
4. Stir in stevia.
5. Sprinkle cinnamon on top if you’d like and enjoy!
