½ scoop Growing Naturals chocolate Rice Protein
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut cream (the rich cream on the top of canned coconut milk)

Pour in the hot water, and stir until all ingredients are dissolved.
- Mexican Hot Chocolate Variation: Add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne for extra warmth in flavor. If you are feeling fancy, use a cinnamon stick for stirring!
Peppermint Hot Chocolate: Add a 3 to 4 drops of peppermint extract to your beverage. Peppermint can be very intense, so add just a drop at a time and taste-test along the way. Around the holidays, you can alternately use a candy cane for a stir stick to add some sweet peppermint flavor.
