So it’s Monday. I was working on our website (not my strong area) and having one of those afternoons where it’s hard to keep my eyes open.
I wanted a quick pick-me-up that didn’t take too long to make and was sugar free. I don’t regularly drink coffee or espresso, and tea wasn’t going to cut it today. This is a quick shortcut method for making Cacao 100% Pure Dark unsweetened hot chocolate. A milk frother and a microwave and a thermometer are not necessary but make it faster and easier, something I can make in the office.
- 1 cup whole milk
- 4 tbsp Cacao 100% Pure Dark unsweetened hot chocolate
Measure out 1 cup whole milk.
Heat for approx 2 1/2 minutes in a microwave, stirring 1-2 times during so heat is distributed evenly. Target temperature is just under 170F degrees. (The microwave isn’t the most delicate preparation, but try to keep the milk fats from caramelizing at temps above 170F)
Add 4 tablespoons Cacao 100% Pure Dark drinking chocolate
Blend with milk frother until all the chocolate is smooth and melted into the milk and the top is nice and frothy.
Drink and enjoy.
