DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients in a large airtight container. Secure the lid and shake vigorously to combine, and remember to shake prior to every extraction. (I sift together into a bowl, then store in a one-quart mason jar with a reusable plastic lid).
  • To serve: Place 2 tablespoons of the mix in a mug and add about 2 fluid ounces hot water (if using powdered milk) or milk/dairy alternative. Stir to combine. Fill the mug with more hot water or milk/dairy alternative and enjoy. (I found 3 tablespoons mix to approximately 6 oz hot coconut milk to be my preference).
  • * The Aztecs always added chiles to their chocolate. Even a pinch ups the flavor ante quite a bit, and as called for here certainly won't be sensed as "heat.".
  • No matter — this is fast, easy and will keep for a year if kept in an airtight container in a cool place.
