That's right. This is a cocoa-tea! The idea hit me when I was craving chocolate the other night and refused to dip into the halloween candy. Again.
Instead, I hit the pantry and decided to experiment with a spiced hot cocoa idea using this Organic Fair Trade Unsweetened Cocoa Lake Champlain sent me months ago.
The result was amazing! A warm, satisfying hot cocoa drink with a fun twist. I've made it 3 times since coming up with the idea and if I didn't run out of Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea bags, I'd make myself some right now!
Here's what I did…
- 8oz Almond Milk
- ½ tbsp Honey
- 1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 1 Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea bag
- dash of nutmeg
Put the milk, honey, cocoa powder and cinnamon in a small sauce pan. Whisk over medium heat until everything is dissolved. Add the tea bag.
Let the tea steep in the warm milk for at least 1-2 minutes. Bring to a light boil.
Remove the tea bag and squeeze between 2 spoons to remove excess liquid.
Pour into a tea cup and add a pinch of nutmeg to the top.
Oh! And the Cocoa Powder is glorious! Smooth and dissolved beautifully in the milk. I love trying new cocoas.
Disclosure: Lake Champlain sent me the cocoa powder to try. I was not compensated in any other way for this post. All opinion expressed are my own.
