Hot Cocoa With Soy Milk.

DSC_1115

The creamiest of the creamiest hot cocoas….. this is it! I sat out in 30* weather watching soccer games this morning…. it was windy, cold, and then it started to drizzle and rain. People get really crabby when they can’t feel their fingers or toes, their face hurts, their legs are numb, and they just want to go home…. dry off… get back into their pjs and sip on something warm.

Normally…. I over-dress for these things to be on the safe side…. but today I totally spaced checking the weather and showed up less than prepared. I was bitterly cold…. and so were my boys. I promised I would make hot cocoa for them when we got home…. and I did!

We all agreed, this recipe here is definitely the best we know of and we hope you give it a try and let us know what you thought!

Hot Cocoa with soy milk: serves 4 kids and 2 adults.
4 C Soy Milk1/4 C Cocoa
1/3 C Raw Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Pure Vanilla
Pinch of sea salt

In a large sauce pan mix together milk, cocoa, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set your burner for high heat and using a stick blender, continually blend the milk while it heats. Once you begin to see steam rising, continue for another 30-40 seconds and then remove from heat, add in vanilla, and ladle into cups! (The creamiest part will be on top, so you can spoon the extra foam to top it off.) sprinkle with a little cinnamon and ENJOY!! (Add in a shot of rum, or Jamison Irish Whiskey to give it that extra “adult” flare to enjoy with friends in the evening on the back patio with a fire going!)
