Heavenly thick chocolate drink. Deliciously creamy, with a slight spicy aftertaste. Just like the Mexicans like to drink it!

Dear Eva …

Read in Dutch

Monster in the kitchen

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]hank you for accepting the apple in paradise. Of course that’s meant sarcastic, as because you took that apple, women now go through hell every month, thanks to premenstrual complaints. At least, I do. Well, hell … let’s just say I can think of something else more pleasant to come back every month.

I’d rather do other things than lay on the couch feeling as if truck or two have run over me. I simply prefer to look like a princess over looking like a scarecrow. I prefer to eat in moderation and structured, over going through the kitch like a monster every half hour.

Intense hunger for chocolate

Eva, Eva, woman … yet there is something that women who read this blog are grateful for. That’s the intense hunger for chocolate that go with my premenstrual complaints. To satisfy them – okay, and also because Ferdi, Vivian and Naomi inquired to – I have made a glass of heavenly chocolate drink: deliciously creamy, with a slight spicy aftertaste. Just like the Mexicans like to drink it! 

My little tweak: I made this cocoa drink solely with healthy ingredients like honey, almond milk, raw cocoa powder and coconut cream. That way this cocoa drink is good to go for the paleo community, lactose intolerants and people that prefer healthy and natural over processed factory chocolate drink.

Mexican Style Paleo Hot Chocolate

Here you go Ferdi, Vivian, Naomi and the rest: here’s the recipe for 2 big glasses of lactose free, paleo friendly (sweetened with honey), hot and spicy chocolate drink:
