We all deserve a rich, decadent treat- especially after coming in from the cold. There is no drink more synonymous with winter than hot chocolate. Its rich, creamy texture helps warm the bones and is a true treat that kids of all ages love. We have put an herbalist's spin on this decadent vegan white hot chocolate, and intertwined flavors and aromas of a summer garden. Aromatic Holy Basil (Tulsi or Sacred Basil) imparts a sense of calmness and grounding, while delicate rose helps the body and mind to relax, inspiring feelings of love and compassion for oneself and others.
In a small saucepan, add 2 cups of organic coconut milk, water, cocoa butter, Tulsi leaves, vanilla bean (seeds and pod), cashew butter, cardamom pods (if using), and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Let this mixture continue to simmer for 10 - 15 minutes. Once all the ingredients have combined, add in maple syrup and stir for 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a sieve or coffee filter to remove the Tulsi leaves, vanilla bean pod, and cardamom pods. Add a pinch of sea salt and stir to be sure all the ingredients have thoroughly combined. In each mug add 2 droppers-full of Rose Petal Elixir and 1 dropper-full of Sacred Basil Glycerite. Pour white hot chocolate into two of your favorite mugs, stir, and garnish with dried rose petals. Share with the ones you love.
