DIY Hot Cocoa Mix:
- 1 cup organic vegan sugar
- 1 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp cayenne double if you like spicier cocoa
- 1/2 vanilla bean sliced down the center to expose the seeds
Cloud Cocoa Mug:
- 1 mug non-dairy milk
- hot cocoa mix to taste
- vegan whipped cream
- 1 square dark chocolate
- cinnamon or nutmeg optional
Hot cocoa Mix
Sift cocoa if for the least clumpy mix – but this step is optional. Add everything to a small mixing bowl and toss well to blend.
Pour into a glass jar or a baggy and seal for future use. When using, be sure not to add whole vanilla bean to cocoa, it really just infuses a lovely essence. For a stronger vanilla flavor, add a few drops to your hot cocoa when making it.
Cloud Cocoa Mug
Step One: Warm your milk to very hot. Pour into a blender. Add the hot cocoa mix to desired tastes.
Step Two: Blend on low for 1-3 minutes until well combined and frothy.
Step Three: Pour the cocoa into mug(s).
Step Four: Pop cocoa mug into the microwave for about ten to twenty seconds, this helps fluff up the milk a bit more!
Step Five: Swirl the whipped cream on top. Grate dark chocolate over top. Add optional cinnamon or nutmeg too. Serve!
