Photo and recipe courtesy of Amanda at Easy Peasy Organic
Oooooh yum. What a perfect warm-up for a snowy day!
1 1/2 c water
1 green tea bag (the 'green')
2 Tbs fair-trade cocoa powder (the 'black')
2 Tbs coconut sugar* (or any brown sugar)
1 1/2 c vanilla soy milk
2 dashes of cinnamon
*if you're using unsweetened cocoa powder you might want to add a little more sugar
Heat the water in a small saucepan to just below boiling point. Remove from heat and add the green tea bag. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
Remove the tea bag and add the cocoa powder, sugar and 3/4 c milk. Heat again to just below boiling, stirring until the sugar and cocoa dissolve. Remove from heat, stir in the remaining milk.
Pour into two mugs and add a dash of cinnamon to each.
Just made some for breakfast this morning. It's like a cozy down comforter in a cup!
