If you saw yesterday's post, you might have noticed that, although I enjoyed most of the foods I wasn't supposed to eat during my 21-day Crazy Sexy Diet cleanse, something was missing. Sugar!!! I did have oats sweetened with Ricemallow Cream for breakfast yesterday, but that hardly counts as dessert.
But I made up for that today with this steamy mug of Hot Chocolate from the Happy Herbivore 2012 calendar:
Seeing as how this is a Happy Herbivore recipe, it's still pretty healthy. But it does contain some melted chocolate chips along with soymilk (I used flax milk, more on that in a later post), cocoa powder (I used raw cacao powder), agave, cinnamon, and a pinch of cayenne for a spicy Mexican flair. I topped it with a few Dandies vegan marshmallows. My office is freezing all the time (even when it's 60 degrees outside like today), so this hot chocolate was the perfect late afternoon warm-up.
My dad ordered me the Happy Herbivore calendar for Christmas. In the past couple of years, I've had Sarah Kramer's wall calendar, and I've made every recipe of the month. I intend to do the same with the HH calendar. So stay tuned for monthly pictures of Lindsay Nixon's mouthwatering, healthy recipes.
