It’s Wednesday again. Time flies over here! How are you guys doing? Do you also feel like time passes so quickly at the moment? I feel like I posted the butternut mac n cheese just yesterday yet I’m back here and it’s a whole week later. Well that means it’s time for another recipe and this week I’m keeping things simple with this tahini hot chocolate. It is definitely the season for it and we have been slacking on our hot chocolate game this winter so I thought it was about time that I got on that.
We love hot drinks in this house; all the teas, Rob loves coffee, turmeric latte and the list goes on. Hot chocolate is probably my favourite hot drink though and recently I tried adding some tahini to my usual mixture and it added such a lovely creaminess and almost a little bit of a savoury touch to my drink. That might sound a little strange and maybe I’m the only one who can taste that but maybe you’ll know what I’m talking about when you try it. Hopefully.
It is super simple and super yummy. It’s great for taking in a thermos on a hike or to the slopes if you are skiing or just taking your kids (or yourself) toboganning. But really guys it tastes awesome in front of Netflix on a Wednesday night too, haha. Enjoy! x
TAHINI HOT CHOCOLATE
YIELDS: 1 servings / TIME: 10 min
1 cup plant milk, I like oat milk
1/2 – 1 tbsp tahini, depending on whether you like the flavour to really come through or simply provide creaminess
2 tsp maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener
1 tsp cacao powder
Mix all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and place over medium high heat.
Warm until almost boiling whilst whisking to ensure no lumps build up or sticking occurs.
Pour and dust with cacao, grate some chocolate on top and add some marshmallows if you wish.
Or simply enjoy as is.
I like to multiply the recipe by 6 or so, excluding the plant milk, and keep in a jar in the fridge. That way I can simply stir it into some hot plant milk when I feel like a treat.
