Are you in full holiday scramble mode like I am?! I hate being stuck without a hostess gift or teacher gift ready to go and we decided to do it again this year, cute mugs filled with conscious hot cocoa mix.
What makes it conscious? Including fair trade organic cocoa and organic turbinado sugar. I think a lot of people don’t know where their sugar or cocoa come from, so I have thought if it for them. Now isn’t that a great and thoughtful gift?!
I have included the printable for you to use as you wish, share the joy of conscious food with your friends. I have purposely left the word “vegan” off of the printable, my goal is simply to get people to think about where their food comes from, not cram vegan ideals down their throat. That being said, if people think about where their food comes from, it may lead them to a different point of view and that is wonderful!!
To make the mix:
combine 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/4 cup sugar and dash of salt
*I simply poured each ingredient into a bag and tied it with a ribbon.
combine mix with 1/3 cup water and stir over low heat until dissolved. add 3 cups milk and heat over medium heat until hot but not boiling. serves-4
I hope that this last minute tip, idea and printable will help you this week! Happy Holidays!!!
