Peppermint, Cacao, Matcha Hot Chocolate

A delicious and healthy holiday treat, well it can be, and it can also be a bit less healthy if you want it to be.

Did you know:

Cocoa powder and cacao powder are very similar, the only difference being that cocoa is processed at a much higher temperature (and often packaged cocoa contains added sugar and dairy). ... So, cacao powder is made from fermented beans that have not been roasted.


Health Benefits of Cacao Powder
  • Lower Blood Pressure. Cacao powder is packed with flavonoids.
  • Reduced Diabetes Risk. The flavonoids in cacao powder may help increase insulin sensitivity, reducing your risk of diabetes.
  • Reduced Heart Disease Risk. Cacao powder contains lots of potassium
  • Reduced Inflammation.



1 cup plant based milk (I like a almond/coconut blend)

1.5 heaping tablespoons cacao powder

1 tablespoon maple syrup (more if you wish)

1-2 drops peppermint essential oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 pinch sea salt toasted marshmallows (for topping, optional) candy canes (for topping, optional)



1. Heat the milk until warmed, in a small saucepan over medium heat, or in an electric milk frother.

2. Whisk together with the cacao powder, maple syrup, 1 drop of the peppermint essential oil, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Taste and add in more peppermint essential oil or maple syrup as desired.

3. Serve warm, with or without a handful of toasted marshmallows and a candy cane topper. Yummmm!
