Whether for breakfast, the afternoon snack, or at bedtime, my children love cocoa.
One can find over 30 different ready to drink cocoa powder varieties in the supermarkets. A large selection of these finished powders contain sugars. In particularly sweet varieties, up to seven pieces of sugar can end up in your glass. This cannot be considered healthy.
Here is a sugar-free, cow milk-free cocoa, that I can offer my children with a clear conscience. Of course, it also tastes very good.
- 1 cup of nuts of your choice (walnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, almonds, etc, best soak overnight)
- 4 seedless dates
- 1 Tbsp pure cocoa powder (without sugar, slightly de-oiled)
- Add nuts and dates to the AND SOY cooking blender.
- Fill it up with cold water until you are in between both marks.
- Select program 4 and start.
- Strain the finished nut milk. Add cocoa powder, stir and done. The cocoa is now lukewarm, just the right drinking temperature.
- This is the simplest version, but you can also spice up your cocoa with vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger or chilli!
- The leftover nut paste can be used for making bread, cakes, muffins or spreads.
