Who hasn’t enjoyed a nice a nice hot chocolate as a snack sometimes, or churros with chocolate on a Sunday morning… Mmmmm, that unmistakeable sweet hot cocoa aroma that fills the whole house, like when you bake biscuits or heat up a butter croissant…
Hot chocolate is so easy to prepare that nobody can resist it. The secret of good hot chocolate is in the cocoa. You just need a good cacao, milk, sugar and a touch of spice for the more “creative” types – cinnamon, clove, vanilla, star aniseed… To taste.
The cocoa can’t be replaced but the milk can. If you don’t want to or can’t use milk, make a delicious hot chocolate by replacing the milk with a plant-based drink, whichever you like best. Rice, oats, spelt or even tiger nut. Today we’ll be making our version of hot chocolate with Organic Oat Drink with Cocoa, cinnamon and marshmallows. That’s right – marshmallows.
Everybody knows marshmallows, with their spongy texture and pink colour. They were given this name in the United States because originally they were made with the root of the marsh mallow plant, so called because it often grows beside rivers and marshes.
It was in the late 19th century that the recipe was changed when they began to be produced industrially, becoming a sweet based on gelatine, maize syrup and sugar. In American movies, it’s typical to see them being toasted over the fire, dipped in chocolate or coloured. Nowadays they’re used as cake decoration, making marshmallow fondant with them.
- 150 ml Organic Oat Drink with Cocoa
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
Heat up the oat drink with cocoa. When it comes to the boil, take it off the heat and add the cocoa and the cinnamon. Stir well and leave it to stand for a while. You can sweeten it with a little cane sugar or agave syrup.
When it’s ready, serve it with some marshmallows.
If you want a thicker chocolate you can add a teaspoonful of rice or maize flour.
