With a cup of Raw Spiced Hot Chocolate, so it begins

Welcome to our first post!

No doubt, I'm über excited about this.

Our first video post should be up as soon as I get a Mac OS upgrade - I'll be editing everything in a true DIY style, on iMovie 11. Ghetto.

In the meantime, check out these awesome pots on how to make raw spiced hot chocolate. What!? Yes..

I consulted these two recipes (1, 2) and came up with my own based on ingredients I already had available at home.

Raw Spiced Hot Chocolate (raw, refined-sugar-free, gluten-free)

Serves 1

  • 1½ cup organic soy milk
  • 2 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1½ tsp raw honey
  • ½ cup hot water
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom 
  • a sprinkle of cayenne

You can replace raw honey with any kind of honey, but in order to get all the (anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal goodness out of it, try picking up a jar next time you're in a health food store.

Though we're really beginning to feel the first chills of Autumn in Sydney, it really isn't so bad when you have the perfect warm, chocolatey, and spicy cup of goodness.

I especially recommend adding sprinkling a little bit of cayenne in the end. Cacao & chili just goes so well together they must be distant cousins.

Stay tuned for subsequent rawsomeness!
