Iced Chocolate (Paleo and Vegan)

Iced chocolate is such a treat. It shouldn’t have to be a guilty pleasure though. A lot of chocolate milks and milkshakes are full of refined sugar, preservatives, flavours and colours. Do your body and favour and switch them out with some superfood alternatives that still satisfy that sweet, rich craving.

Perfect on a hot summers day, when you don’t really feel like doing much at all.

3 tbs boiling water

2 tbs cacao powder

2 tbs honey or coconut nectar

1 tsp vanilla essence

dollop of your favourite healthy chocolate spread

300 ml of your dairy free milk of choice (I use coconut)

Handful of ice cubes

 

Step 1: In a strong glass cup, combine the boiling water, cacao, honey and vanilla.

Step 2: Stir until they have combined and have formed a chocolatey liquid.

Step 3: Mix in vanilla essence and chocolate spread, mix again until combined.

(If you want the fancy ‘chocolate effect’ on the side of your glass, simply drizzle the chocolate syrup mix down the sides and stir the milk in very gently, taking care not to hit the sides of the glass)

Step 4: Add in milk and ice cubes, and stir all together.

 

We bought some lovely reusable straws online, so that we can wash and use them again and again.
