Snowy Day Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa
It’s the perfect kind of snowy day here.
The kind where it’s the first day of Spring Break anyway, so there’s no worrying about school delays or slippery roads.
Yes, it’s Spring Break, baby! Here’s fair warning that you may hear a little less from me this coming week as I spend my time with the girls. (But don’t worry, I’ll share that sourdough recipe in our next post.)
Meanwhile, bikinis, sunshine and wild times shall ensue.
Luckily, Pea Daddy was home when the storm hit, meaning I didn’t have to freeze my badonkadonk off during snowman construction.
The snowman keeled over exactly when he got his picture taken.
I never knew you, poor soul. Rest in peace.
At least it was snowy enough to sled for an hour and then, like beautiful magic, the thaw began, leading to me finding my children topless in the garage, putting their pajamas back on right when I got home from the gym.
I told you there’d be wild times.
Fortunately, I was there to make the perfect mug of hot cocoa for all.
Sugar-free Hot Cocoa
- 1 c. non-dairy or organic whole milk
- 1 1/2 T. cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- stevia to taste
*I suggest starting by using two packets of stevia. If you don’t care for stevia, you can substitute maple syrup or agave to taste, but then it wouldn’t be sugar-free. If you do dairy, I suggest using whole milk from the best source possible.
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring frequently. I like to give the cocoa a quick run through the blender before serving to make it extra frothy.
This is the good stuff, friends.
The bright white sunshine streaming in on my girls’ rosy cheeks as they thaw their little fingers on hot mugs filled with rich, creamy deliciousness.
No other pressing need than to just keep their mugs and their hearts filled.
Yes, it’s the perfect kind of snowy day indeed.
