Sip on this!
1 cup, plus 1-2 tablespoons milk of choice (I used sweetened almond milk)
2 rounded teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon raw sugar (or sweetener of choice)
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Place milk in a small pot over medium low heat.
Meanwhile, place cocoa powder, sugar, and extra tablespoon of almond milk in a small bowl. Whisk until a paste/thick mixture forms and powder is absorbed. Add additional tablespoon of almond milk, if needed.
Whisk cocoa mixture into milk mixture. Heat till hot but not boiling. Stir in vanilla extract.
Pour into a mug and sprinkle with cinnamon, if using.
Serve and enjoy once the drink is cool enough to safely drink.
The directions above are for a stovetop preparation, but you can just as easily make this in the microwave.Multiplies easily if you need more than a single serving.
