Candy Cane White Hot Chocolate

Written by Julie Morris

An instant new holiday tradition! If store-bought hemp milk is used as opposed to homemade, I recommend Living Harvest brand – it has a white, smooth viscosity that is ideal for this recipe. Rice milk works as well, but consider leaving out some of the water as rice milk it is naturally a thinner type of milk.

INGREDIENTS:

¼ cup water

1 cup unflavored hemp milk

1½ Tbsp shaved cacao butter

1½ tsp agave nectar, or to taste (stevia also makes a good substitute)

3-4 drops mint extract

¼ tsp vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

In a small saucepan, heat all the ingredients over low for about 5 minutes (cacao butter should be entirely melted at the surface). Transport to a blender and blend for 30 seconds to emulsify cacao butter into the beverage. Or, keep liquid in pan and use a hand-held blender to whisk directly in the saucepan.

Serves one.
