I love hot chocolate on a cold day - or any day actually! So I use a mug that holds 2 cups of water and heat the water almost to boiling.
I put one packet of hot chocolate in the mug, 1 heaping tablespoon of organic, unsweetened cacao powder (I find it at Walmart), 1/4 tsp. powdered rooibos tea, 1/4 tsp. ceylon cinnamon (I buy it from Swanson), a scoop of MCT Oil Powder and a scoop of collagen powder.
Sometimes I add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a little Chili Spice. Depends on my mood - but it's all delicious. Often I include a scoop of Matcha tea as well.
Don't be limited by my additions - add any spice or herb that appeals to you! Ginger, allspice and cardamom would be delicious too!
Talk about delicious, satisfying and nourishing!
