    I've been using unsweetened almond milk and 100% dark cocoa for hot chocolate. I love it.

    Nina, that sounds good--I think I have the ingredients handy. . .


    DCKMB. . .have you gone up to Julian--some of the places up there might have some local unsweetened cider.

    unpasteurized cider ferments pretty quickly.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    Aha, so it becomes hard cider too soon. Sounds good to me


    If you have a good farmer's market they might have local cider. I think the stuff I can get is still pasteurized, but at least it's just apples with no added ingredients at all. It's very strong/thick, and subsequently delicious


    The hot cocoa with a touch of cinnamon and chili powder sounds wonderful too, I might try that one with CM.

    DCKMB - getting back to you a little late on the cream/water question. I have to admit I go to taste, so not sure how much I mix in. 1/2 cream, 1/2 water sounds good...maybe slightly more water to start say 1/3 cream, 2/3 water. I'd play around w/ it & go w/ how it tastes. More fat/cream is never a problem

    I saw a recipe in Sally Fallon's "Nourishing traditions" that uses just apples and whey and the cider is produced by the process of lacto-fermentation.

    I ski a lot. Uh, like twice a week and hot chocolate is a huge thing when you go in for a break or for lunch, etc.

    It is cheap if you buy a cup of hot water and bring your own packets of stuff to throw in there. I can bring my own sweetener and my own cocoa powder, but besides powdered milk (yuck) I don't know how to get some low carb, good hot chocolate with good fat instead of lactose and casein, etc.

    The almond milk and dark chocolate sounds delicious, Mandy, but I don't know how I could heat that up at a ski resort (most of them do not have microwaves, stupid I know).

    Ideas??

    i ski a lot too and hike and snomobile up in lapland and hot chocolate is a treat i allow myself once in a while - i make it with 100% cocoa powder and raw milk + a dash of something stronger , but lately im more into mulled wine - just a couple of sticks of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, staranise, peppercorns and some kind of sweetener....

    im just goint to the cottage tomorrow, my hb is already there and it was a snowstorm when he was driving up there... maybe not enough to ski on yet, but about 15 cm still on the ground
