Hot Cocoa

For this recipe, I usually just use a regular serving teaspoon, rather than a measuring teaspoon.  It’s easier and makes this recipe more of a “go-to” you can make in minutes.  I guarantee you will memorize it quickly and just be able to make it on a whim!  Enjoy!

Splash of vanilla unsweetened almond milk



  1.  Boil your water.
  2. In your desired mug, stir together all but the almond milk.
