Homemade Healthier Chocolate Syrup
Chocolate Milk. Who doesn’t love ice-cold chocolate milk? and let’s not forget spending a cold winter day with a mug of rich and creamy Hot Chocolate!! Or a drizzle of chocolate syrup that turns a plain coffee into a mocha! It’s difficult to find a way to keep such decadent treats in your life, while keeping to sticking to a REAL FOOD lifestyle – have you looked that the list of ingredients in store-bought chocolate milk, chocolate syrup or hot cocoa mix? UGH! How gross.
How about a super easy chocolate syrup that you can make in just minutes? With ingredients that are healthy, like Raw Cacao??! Yes I’ve got the recipe for you!!
- 1/2 cup Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 cup Water, filtered
- 2 cups Coconut Sugar
- 1 pinch Sea Salt
- 1/8 teaspoon Vanilla
- Combine everything together in your blender and blend until smooth!
- Remember this syrup is concentrated/strong, use cautiously a little goes a long way...
That’s interesting … why coconut sugar?
I think coconut sugar is pretty amazing stuff. I’ve been looking for healthier alternatives for refined-white-sugar (which we all know is really bad for you!) Coconut sugar is not a refined sugar (meaning all the good vitamins and minerals are left in) and it has a lower Glycemic Index (less impact on blood sugar levels) than regular sugar. The best part is that you can use it 1:1 for regular sugar in baking and it makes the most divine carmel sauce (look around my blog I use coconut sugar very often!!)
Interesting!! I haven’t see it anywhere here yet but I’ll keep my eye out!
I’m in southwestern rural Pennsylvania – I’ve seen it at our local Giant Eagle and Kroger (chain supermarkets) It’s either in your organic section or with the Thai cooking supplies.. I typically buy mine from Amazon since the price is lower. Let me know if you get some – I think the flavor is so good. Its really good in coffee too!
I’m in Arctic Canada … selections are limited sometimes 🙁
I guess ordering online will be your best option 🙂 I love amazon and if your amazon prime you get free 2 day shipping on so many things. It saves us so much money. and They have subscribe and save which saves even more!
