Happy Day Of The Dead or Dia de los Muertos! One of the popular foods or drinks to celebrate this ancient Mexican holiday is Oaxacan Hot Chocolate which leans more to spicy than sweet.
Since the weather is beginning to get cooler, hot drinks become the popular thing to drink, not only in Mexico but here as well. Chocolate is native to Mesoamerica and the ancients actually ground the beans on a grinding stone to make the delicious beverage.
Today we are lucky enough to have cocoa powder which makes the job much easier. To make your own spicy hot chocolate, (keto approved) just follow this easy recipe.
Ingredients: 2T Organic Cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Organic Ceylon Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Fine Sea Salt
1 Cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1pkt Pyure brand Stevia
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a Ninja Blender and blend for 10 seconds. Pour into a mug and garnish with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of cayenne. Enjoy!
You could also top your yummy hot, spicy chocolate with some home made coconut whipped cream!
