    Ultimate hot chocolate

    My sister who has been primal a lot longer than I have put me onto this, its great at night before bed or with breakfast - I find I need a much smaller breakfast when I have this first.

    I heaped teaspoon cocoa powder - or if feeling decadent, 1 square of high % cocoa dark chocolate
    1 teaspoon coconut oil
    2-4 tablespoons coconut cream/ milk
    1 drizzle vanilla extract
    Hot water

    In a mug. Delicious. Can also add a touch of honey if you find it too bitter, but personally I love the bitterness.

    Sounds like you won't need breakfast after this!

    I always used to add a pinch of chilli powder to hot chocolate to give it an awesome kick.

    Without this drink with breakfast I have a 3 egg omelette with chorizo, spinach, mushroom, leek and cheese. With it I had a boiled egg, and struggled to eat it. :-)

    Cinnamon would also be a good addition.

    Hot chocolate is one thing I miss intermittently but persistently (basically when cold and/or rainy days become intolerable). Unfortunately, I tried making hot chocolate with coconut milk before, and I thought it was gross. I do tolerate coconut milk with berries and/or in smoothies. I am glad you like it though.

    I just chew cocoa bits now or add them to a mushed banana or almond butter.

    Maybe I just should use Devon Cream?

    After I gave up milk I used to make hot chocolate with water, then topping it up with heavy cream.
