“Perfect way to start the day. Cocoa powder is actually quite healthy, at least when the milk is left out of it. The almonds aren't just a beneficial alternative, it makes for a very tasty and distinct hot cocoa.”

Directions

  1. Combine water and almonds in a blender. Blend until smooth. It's hard to blend almonds perfectly smooth. I dont mind some chunks, but you can always blend more if you want.
  2. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT boiling water and stir (or give it a short whir with the blender).
  3. Poor into a cup, along with the boiling water.
  4. TIP: This should result in a temperature that is just right for scoffing down immediately. If you want it hotter - let's say you don't want to chug it in one big swallow - use more boiling water and less blending water to suit your needs.
