Macadamia Hot Milk Chocolate

Makes 1 – 2 cups

Ingredients

Macadamia nuts, handful
0.5 – 2 cups of water, adjust to consistency
1 – 2 dates, pitted
Cacao powder (unsweetened)
Optional: 1 teaspoon or so of a macadamia nut butter
Optional: 1 teaspoon of lecithin granules. This makes it more creamy (Lecithin is made from soy, eggs, sunflower or corn).

Directions

  1. Make a macadamia milk: in a blender add the macadamias and water and blend into a milky consistency.
  2. Add the dates and lecithin granules to the milk mixture and blend until smooth. Taste and add more dates to sweeten if required.
  3. Strain the milk through a sieve and discard the nut pulp.
  4. Add the milk to a saucepan and gently simmer until warm enough to your liking.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the cacao powder and the nut butter. Serve and enjoy!
