Wholesome, Homemade Hot Chocolate (+ Canna-Cocoa Recipe)

Warm Sweet Hot Chocolate & Canna-Cocoa

IMG_2028Winter is here in full blast.  Winter Storm, Jonas, came by this weekend and dumped more than two feet of snow.

We spent hours frolicking in the icy fluff which makes a pretty backdrop.

After all the outdoor joy, I poured out the homemade hot chocolate.

I remember being young and sledding for hours.  Then we’d clamor inside, wiggle out of our wet outerwear, and bee-line for the envelopes of Swiss Miss.

I can practically taste that watery cup of sugar, preservatives, and artificial flavors and can’t help but wonder how I ever enjoyed it.

Homemade hot chocolate is a thousand times better (and better for you!).

Homemade hot chocolate is easy to make.  Ditch the envelopes.  Make real homemade hot chocolate instead!

Here’s my recipe.  All wholesome, natural ingredients that leave me feeling good about what I’m feeding my kids.


Homemade Hot Chocolate

3.5 Cups of Milk (or Substitute)Wholesome Homemade Hot Chocolate weed hot chocolate
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Power or Carob Powder
3 Tablespoons Coconut Sugar
½ Teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
Dash – 1/8 Teaspoon Chili Powder (depending on preferred heat level)

The chili powder adds dimension and highlights the cocoa.  If you don’t like heat, just use a light sprinkle.

Combine in a saucepan.  Heat on low for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Makes 4 servings.


Canna-Cocoa – Wholesome, Homemade Hot Chocolate with Cannabis Infused Oil

Delicious, Wholesome Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe (with a Cannabis infused version: Weed Hot Cocoa)

Weed hot cocoa is one of the easiest and quickest ways to take my medication.

It’s simple to make.  If I have a pot of hot chocolate made, then I add the completed hot chocolate and one dose of canna-oil into the Nutri-Bullet for a whirl.  It comes out frothy and perfect.

If I don’t have a pot of hot chocolate ready, then I follow my Cocoa-for-One Recipe.
