I was pretty unsure as to how this would turn out. but after a few attempts I smashed it. This is really really delicious. It's like a rich, creamy, sweet hot chocolate. Not meaty at all, but has a real depth of flavour. It's kind of addictive and unbelievably dairy free, not to mention gluten free with very little added sugar. I'm in Love.
Serves: 2 people
Time: 15 minutes
* indicates optional ingredients
5 Dark Chocolate Buttons / 5-6g Dark Chocolate (>70% Cocoa Solids)
1/2 Tbsp Grade A Maple Syrup / Honey
4 Tbsp Organic Coconut Milk (use the thick stuff often comes in a tin if you can not the watery stuff)
*1 Dried Orange Slice / Pinch Fresh Orange Zest
*1 Stick of Cinnamon / Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
Pinch of freshly ground Nutmeg
Heat the Bone broth in a small milk pan
Split the chocolate into two mugs
Add the orange and cinnamon stick to the broth and heat slowly until it briefly comes to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Add half of the coconut milk to the broth stirring until completely blended.
Slowly pour the broth into each mug, ensuring the chocolate melts and blends with the broth, to do this well you must add the simmering broth very slowly mixing as you go.
Once completely mixed with the chocolate add a tablespoon of the coconut milk to each mug, then finish with a little ground nutmeg on top. Finally drink and experience heaven, heaven I tell you!
