5. Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

I’m sure many of you have had hot chocolate, and perhaps even a hot white chocolate, but have you ever had a pumpkin spice white hot chocolate?

You’re missing out if not!

This is one of the best renditions I’ve ever had for a warm cozy beverage.

If you’re avoiding sugar, sub in coconut butter for the white chocolate like I do.

It makes for the perfect replacement!

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

4-5 cups of milk (can use any kind you like here)

¼ cup white chocolate chips or coconut butter

4 tsp.

cocoa powder

1 tsp.

vanilla extract

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

dash of ground cloves (no more than ⅛ tsp)

Directions:

In a heavy saucepan, combine 2 cups of milk, white chocolate or coconut butter, and cocoa powder.

Cook over medium heat, whisking periodically, until the chocolate or coconut butter is melted and the mixture is well combined.

Whisk in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.

Add the remaining milk, 1 cup at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.

If desired, serve topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice.

If using whipped cream, save enough room in the mugs on top!
