Dairy Free Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:
½ cup raw cacao or natural unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup coconut sugar 
3 T carob powder (or more cacao if you don’t like carob)
2 T maca powder
2 t ground cinnamon
1 t ground ginger
¼ t sea salt

*1/4 t vanilla extract (optional)

Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk. Store in an airtight jar or container. 
To make hot chocolate, add 8-12oz. of your preferred non-dairy milk to a saucepan over medium heat.  Add in 1-2 heaping spoonfuls of dry mix and 1/4 t vanilla extract, whisking constantly until all is combined and the milk is warm. Can adjust amount of dry ingredients to your taste. 

Options: can add a sprinkle of cinnamon or coconut whipped cream if desired on top.
**You can leave out the maca powder and ground ginger, but it is a nice healthy addition! Maca powder is a superfood and ginger is anti-inflammatory.
