Day 128: Cinnamon Hot Chocolate

Yield: 2 people
Time (Start to Finish): 20 min

2 cups soy milk
½ cup heavy cream
cocoa powder (to taste)
2-4 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp vanilla

Strawberry jam
Whipping cream

1. In a sauce pot, mix the cream, soy milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla with a whisk until smooth and creamy. Heat on med until hot but not boiling. Taste it and feel free to adjust the spices. More cinnamon, more chocolate, whatever suites you best!
2. In a mixer, mix the cream until it is whipped cream. No sugar or sweetener. Then add a little strawberry jam to make it strawberry flavored. Put on top and enjoy!

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: Our house is so cold we could see our breath! So what better to do than to make hot chocolate! I wish I had some bailey’s though. That would have made it a million times better. But the strawberry cream really added a lot, and it was just the right spicy where it was still obviously hot chocolate, but with a little sumthin. I like soy milk with a mix of cream so it isn’t as heavy, but you can add just regular milk if you like too. Enjoy!
