Healthier Hot Cocoa

fit-momma-2-fiveThis morning it was only 63 degrees in our house! I think it is time to turn the furnace back on!

The kids LOVE having a warm cup of cocoa on those cold mornings, but I cringe at the ingredients in those little packets you can buy at the store. So I came up with a healthier version for them to enjoy!

Healthier Hot Cocoa

1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup hot water
1/8 tsp salt
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla

Combine the cocoa powder, sugar, and water in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat. Continue to whisk together until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the milk. Stir in the vanilla. Continue stirring until it is warm. Do not boil.

Feel free to share! 🙂
