Choco Milk

Choco Milk

This milk is not only delicious but it's really healthy too! Raw cacao offers a wealth of health benefits and homemade almond milk is creamy and rich in protein. Add some dates and a hint of vanilla and you've got the perfect drink! Enjoy hot or icy cold.

Ingredients: 

♥ 250ml homemade almond milk OR any other plant-based milk of your choice (homemade or bought)

♥ 1 x tbsp raw cacao powder 

♥ 1-2 medjool dates (or 1tsp of maple, agave, yacon or date syrup)

♥ ¼ vanilla pod (or drop of vanilla essence/extract/paste)

 

Method: 

1. Follow our homemade almond milk recipe OR use shop bought plant-based milk of your choice.

2. Remove stone from the medjool date. 

3. Slice the vanilla pod lengthways and then scrape the seeds out using a knife. 

4. Place all ingredients together in the blender and blend for 30 seconds. 

5. Check that everything has been blended to a smooth liquid. 

6. If using home-made milk, strain through a nut milk bag or muslin over a large jug and then transfer into a glass. Otherwise drink it as it is (or warm it up).

7. If you wanted to heat it up: pour into small saucepan and heat gently on hob on low-med heat for a few minutes. 

8. Decoration (optional): sprinkle pinch of raw cacoa powder or cacao nibs and top with an edible flower (if you're feeling really pretty).
