Change up your plain hot chocolate routine and keep warm and cozy with a mug of orange & chocolate deliciousness! It’s super easy to make and will add some vitamin C to your cocoa.
In a small/medium saucepan, heat milk and orange juice over medium-low heat. Add cocoa, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and pinch of salt, stir until cocoa is completely dissolved. Turn heat to low to keep cocoa warm until ready to serve.
Serve in individual cups topped with any garnish you like. I added coconut cream, dusted with cocoa powder and topped with orange zest.
Serves 2 – 3
Feel free to use water in place of non-dairy milk or use a combo of water & milk equally 3 cups.
For the orange juice, use fresh squeezed or bottled (no pulp to medium pulp pref). If using fresh squeezed, you may like to strain the pulp before using.
Make your 1/4 cup of cocoa heaping if you like a little extra chocolate flavor.
