Chai Coconut butter Hot Chocolate
1 1/2 cup of hot water
1 tbsp of coconut butter
2 tbsp of cacao powder
4 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cardamom
½ tsp ground cloves
a pinch of grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp of vanilla powder or extract
optional 1/2 tbsp of vanilla protein powder
a touch of liquid sweetener of choice
Pour all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into your favourite mug, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon, cacao powder or raw chocolate and enjoy!
The chocolate will be thick and can be eaten with a spoon. If you prefer your hot chocolate more on the thinner side, add more liquid and omit adding the protein powder.
If you don't have coconut butter, you can substitute for a nut or seed butter of choice.
If you don't have a blender, use 1 cup of your favourite milk. Coconut or almond work really well here.
