Paleo Hot Chocolate

Posted on

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!

Directions:

  1. Throw everything into a medium saucepan and whisk to mix ingredients.
  2. Heat up over medium heat just until it starts to steam and foam on top.

Primal Hot Cereal

Primal Hot Cereal from the cookbook:
Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals: Delicious, Primal-approved meals you can make in under 30 minutes (Primal Blueprint Series)by Mark Sisson and Meier

My kids were getting sick of eggs for breakfast. It’s a pretty good indicator that it is time to switch it up when I start getting greeted with groans every morning. Eggs are just so quick and easy. I have to say though, this cereal is great….and super easy! Once again, throw everything into the food processor and chop it up…have I mentioned how much I love my food processor? I like to chop the nuts before adding the rest of the ingredients just to get a finer, more cereal-like texture. I immediately make a double batch of this and usually have to make another one. My kids like their breakfast! So just be warned to have more than 1 banana on hand if you are making this for the family.
