Almond Milk Hot Chocolate


Before becoming a coffee aficionado (because I still don't consider myself an addict), what I drank every morning was a nice cup of hot chocolate; creamy and smooth thanks to the good fat in almond milk, rich with all the chocolate goodness of the chocolate chips and the sweetness balanced with the bitterness of cocoa powder and the spiciness of cinnamon.

For my first ever video on the blog (yeyy!!) I decided to share with you one of my favorite creations from the kitchen, this very hot chocolate.  I’m going old school with this video, mostly because my video editing skills are like that, old school.  That means no cuts, intermixing takes or background music.  But I’ll be getting there, promise! In the meantime, enjoy this short, one take and straightforward video.  Full recipe below.

One serving
Total time - 2 minutes

Almond milk – 1 cup
