At Sweet Beauty we promote the benefits of feeling good in order to feel beautiful and what makes you feel better than chocolate? There are many things that feel good, but chocolate is still tops in our book and we don’t like to be limited to just eating bars of it, although that is pretty great. We have searched through the best drinking chocolate recipes far and wide. We tried and loved them all, but needed something even better. We invite you to try it for yourself.
16 oz Whole Milk
4 oz Heavy Cream or Half and Half
4 oz Roughly Chopped Organic Chocolate, 75% or higher
2 Fresh Vanilla Beans or 1.5 t Vanilla Extract
1/4 to 1/3 cup Cane Sugar, Honey or Agave Nectar
Gently heat the Milk and Cream, being careful not to scald. Scrape the Vanilla Beans and add to the simmering Milk and Cream. Add the Chocolate. Gently stir until melted. Add Your Chosen Sweetener. Stir Well. Top with Fresh Made Whipped Cream.
For different twist on this recipe you could add:
2 Cinnamon Sticks
Chili Water (Simmer chili pepper cut in half and cleaned in 2 cups of water until reduced by half, strain)
Freshly ground nuts: almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts
You can adjust the quantity of Milk, Cream or Half and Half. The drink will be thinner and you get healthier.
I suppose you will too
