Ingredients
  • 2 cups filtered water

  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tsp coconut sugar, extra depending how sweet you want your hot chocolate*
  • Optional: marshmallows
Method
  1. In a high-speed blender, add water and hemp seeds, blend on high until well combined and water turns white/pale, approx. 20-30 seconds.
  2. To the blender, add vanilla, cocoa powder and cinnamon. Blend on high until well combined.
  3. Pour chocolate mixture into a small/medium pot and put over a medium heat.
  4. Add desired amount of coconut sugar. I add 2 teaspoons. Whisk well until dissolved.
  5. Continue to heat mixture over a medium-high heat until it begins to steam, don’t let it boil. NOTE: or heat to your desired drinking temperature.
  6. Remove from heat and pour into mugs. Optional: marshmallows

Notes
Find hemp seeds at your local health food store.
*Alternatively, you can use 1-2 medjool dates to add sweetness in place of the coconut sugar. Or your desired sweetener of choice, such as honey or maple syrup.
