This dairy-free Mexican Hot Chocolate is sure to be a once-in-a-while treat that satisfies.
Now, before you go all, “But what about your philosophy of not Paleo-ifying treats?!” rebuttal, let me assure you: This one is completely sugar free and is meant to be a treat, not your everyday drink of choice.
If you don’t like the idea of adding the spices, you can leave them out and certainly, if you have homemade almond milk or something else yummy kicking around, you can substitute that instead.
This one’s pretty rich and is meant to be sipped and savored.
