If you love adding essential oils to your water and tea, then you’ll no doubt love this Lavender Hot Chocolate recipe, too!
When the weather is chilly, one thing I love to do is make homemade hot chocolate. None of that instant-powdered stuff. I’m talking unsweetened cocoa powder, pure vanilla extract, a little bit of honey, and some lavender essential oil (this is my favorite brand to use, especially in food recipes). As if the hot chocolate wasn’t comforting enough, you can get a double dose by adding lavender to the mix.
Lavender Hot Chocolate
4 cups milk (your choice of regular, unsweetened almond, or soy)
8 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoons honey, or more to taste
4 drops Lavender essential oil
Add the milk to a medium saucepan and heat on medium-high. Whisk cocoa, vanilla, and honey until smooth. Remove from heat and add 4 drops of lavender essential oil and stir.
