We have been hammered with snow this week. I’m not sure of exact amounts, but it’s a lot of snow. Plus, the temps have gone up dramatically. No, I’m not gonna just give you the weather report today, but obviously with this combo my kids have wanted to basically LIVE outside. We have gone sledding, built snowmen, snow forts, made snow angels…you name it- we’ve done it! When we are done, we pile into the house as cold and wet messes! The old me (the pre-Paleo me), would have just starting ripping open bags of hot cocoa for the kiddos. I decided Paleo hot chocolate couldn’t that much harder to throw together. I’m so glad I tried it out! It’s delicious! It’s a little thicker and more creamy than the normal stuff, so you might want to add even more water. I like it creamy though!
Paleo Hot Chocolate
- 1 can of coconut milk
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 -3/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- dash of sea salt
- Throw everything into a medium saucepan and whisk to mix ingredients.
- Heat up over medium heat just until it starts to steam and foam on top.
- Make sure to keep an eye on it and whisk throughout! You don’t weant it to burn on the bottom of the pan.
- Top with coconut cream! Yum!
