I've been drawn to making soothing hot beverages in the evenings, and by throwing some ingredients together, I made the thickest, creamiest hot cocoa I've ever made - completely by accident!
*However, if you're reading this in summer, you can add ice and make a killer chocolate frappicino in the blender!
If you've ever been to Madrid, Spain and eaten "churros con chocolate" it's thick like that - sans white sugar + dairy! Reminiscent of my favorite drinking chocolate bars like Dandelion in San Francisco and Chocoholic in Taipei, this one seriously rivals the best of 'em. It's quick + easy to make!
Try it for yourself and let me know what you think:
Throw all the ingredients into the pot haphazardly (except the flower elixir - leave that until the end). Bring up the temperature, stirring constantly until the chocolate melts. Turn off the heat just as it's reaching a boil and pour into your favorite mug. Let it cool a few minutes, because it. gets. thicker. as it cools down a bit. Add your favorite flower elixir now. If you really want to get fancy, sprinkle some cocoa powder, cinnamon or edible flowers on top.
Drink in this rich, buttery, nutty chocolate + feel nourished! You're consuming lots of magnesium (chocolate, nut butter + nut milk) and the collagen is great for your joints, skin, hair + more. To your health + long life! May your heart be nourished.
Love + flower petals,
