Ultra-Delicious Cocoa Tea Recipe

Cocoa tea is basically a Caribbean version of hot cocoa. Traditionally, to make this hot chocolate beverage, the cocoa beans are roasted, and afterward grounded and rolled into a stick. This is then grated into a cocoa powder, which ends up being the feature ingredient for this drink.

However, for the recipe below, note that any powdered cocoa or cocao (preferably organic) will still make you a delicious hot chocolate drink.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup of grated or powdered cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • brown sugar
  • nip of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 cup of almond or whole milk
  • 1 bay leaf (optional)

Cocoa tea recipe:

  • Bring water, cocoa, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and bay leaf to boil in a medium saucepan.
  • Stir in coconut milk and your choice of either almond or whole milk.
  • Sweeten with brown sugar to taste, and then add a tiny amount of salt.
  • Continue to simmer mixture on low heat for a minute or two.
  • Strain into your favorite mug and enjoy your cocoa tea!
