Ever since the weather turned chilly we have had a new obsession at our house. Hot Chocolate!!! But what’s even better is that because of the delicious and nutritious gelatin in this recipe, which makes the hot chocolate extra thick and creamy, you can put the leftovers in the fridge and they turn into a thick, rich pudding-jel. My kids love it and it is super easy to make. And I love adding in gelatin (from a healthy grass-fed source), because it is such a super food. If you don’t know about it already check out this post by Savory Lotus on the benefits of eating gelatin. But enough chit chat. Here is the recipe:
Hot Chocolate turned Choco-Jel-Pudding
6 cups of milk
3 TBSP Gelatin (preferably grass fed gelatin, which you can get here)
6 TBSP raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup of honey or 1/4 tsp of stevia powder (add more to desired sweetness)
Whisk all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until well blended. When everything is dissolved and liquid comes to a simmer, take off the heat. To drink the hot chocolate, pour into mugs and serve immediately (especially delicious with a dollop of whipped cream or mixed into coffee to make a mocha!). Save any leftover in the fridge and in a few hours your Choco-Jel-Pudding will be ready and equally delicious!
Enjoy and please share!
