Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • Optional toppings:
    • Zest of an orange
    • Fresh mint leaves finely cut

Directions:

  1. Heat almond milk, vanilla, and butter in a small saucepan on the stove at medium-low heat.
  2. While those ingredients are heating, in a separate bowl combine, cacao powder, sugar, salt, cornstarch, maple syrup, and an egg. Whisk together as best you can.
  3. Once saucepan ingredients are hot (steam will be rising off the almond milk mixture), carefully pour 1/2 of the liquid mixture into the bowl and whisk together with the dry ingredients. Once mixed well with no lumps, add back in to the saucepan on the stove.
  4. Continue whisking together until it begins to thicken, about 3-5 minutes. Once it begins to thicken remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. It will continue to thicken up.
  5. Enjoy a ½ cup per person. Store the remaining 2 servings in the fridge until needed. It's amazing to eat while it's hot but equally good cold!
