I take gelatin every day. I usually have gelatin tea. I dissolve one tablespoon of gelatin in hot water and then throw a tea bag in to steep. Tea is not the best for covering the gelatin flavor. If I was a coffee drinker it would be much easier to drink my daily gelatin. Coffee completely masks any unpleasant flavor. I have coffee on occasion, but I would rather have hot chocolate for something special. There are times when I want something more decadent than tea.
Single Serving Healing Hot Chocolate
- 1 tablespoon gelatin*
- 2 tablespoons organic sugar
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- pinch of salt
- 12 oz unsweetened almond/coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
Stir together gelatin, sugar, cocoa and salt in a large mug. Stir in one tablespoon of milk to make a paste. Slowly stir in rest of milk. Microwave for 1 minute, stir and heat one more minute or until desired temperature. Stir in vanilla and enjoy.
*For fabulous vegan hot chocolate just leave out the gelatin.
We used to have hot chocolate and toast on Sunday evenings. We would have a large Sunday dinner in the afternoon and then hot chocolate, fruit and toast for supper.
One thought on “Healing Hot Chocolate”
Interesting idea. I’m a huge fan of tea, but never thought to put gelatin in it. I might try it next time. Thanks for sharing 🙂
