Healthy Peppermint Hot Cocoa Recipe

Ever wake up on a wintery weekend and wish you could make your own coffee-house quality peppermint cocoa without trudging outdoors?
We have a solution for you that is out-of-this-world good . . . and would you believe it’s nutritious to boot?!
No funky ingredients . . . no artificial colors . . . no ingredients you can’t pronounce.
So, what are you waiting for? Whip up a batch of this cocoa and cuddle up . . . it’s cold outside!
Recipe makes enough for 3 mugs.

Warm almond milk on the stovetop or in the microwave until warm, approximately 4 minutes. Once warm, carefully pour milk into a high powered blender. Add remaining ingredients. Blend on high for approximately one minute. Pour and enjoy.
Cocoa with a hint of peppermint brings visions of stockings hung by the fireplace and presents under the tree. But, if you are in the mood for plain ‘ol cocoa, just nix the peppermint. Or, trying adding a shot of espresso for an instantly delicious mocha. Prefer your cocoa sweeter? Add more dates. This flexible recipe can adapt to almost anything your heart desires.
