This zesty hot cocoa is a perfectly warming marriage of sweet and spicy!
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder (or more if you like your hot cocoa super chocolately)
- 2 tbsp cane sugar
- 3 cups milk or dairy substitute (coconut milk works great)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ small orange (zested)
- ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
- Wisk together all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat on low until warm, stirring frequently.
If you’re using a dairy substitute (like coconut milk) be sure to use an unsweetened version.
