This hot chocolate reminds me of a snowy walk with its invigorating icy cool peppermint. Just lovely for elevenses and with the added bonus of the flavour of after dinner mints. Be warned Japanese oil of peppermint is very powerful so only add one drop!
Note: Make sure you use an oil of peppermint for culinary use. I use Obbekjaers Oil of Peppermint. If you cannot get this, you could also use peppermint extract to taste. Start with ¼ teaspoon and work up from there.
- 1½ cups almond milk
- 2 tbsps cacao powder
- 2 tbsps agave
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tbsp. melted coconut oil
- 1 drop Japanese oil of peppermint
- In a blender, whizz all the ingredients until well combined.
- Transfer to a saucepan and heat until warm to the touch.
- Pour into a warmed mug.
