Easy Peppermint Hot Cocoa + Fresh Whipped Cream

Serves 2

  • 2 cups milk (I use raw, full fat milk)

  • 3 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract (I used Organics brand, you can also use a few drops of pure peppermint oil)
  • ½ cup heavy cream, preferably raw
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Beat heavy cream and honey with a hand mixer or stand mixer until soft peaks form. Cover and chill.

Whisk milk and honey in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; add cocoa powder and whisk until smooth. Whisk in peppermint.
