Hello Hello and Happy Monday!
Not sure what the weather is like where you are, but here in Vancouver, it is grey, drizzly, cold (well, compared to what it has been lately!), and... I love it!
Reminds me of Edinburgh or London- I had the pleasure of exploring both places in the pouring rain. Sometimes while wearing a backpack as big as me.
Anyway, extreme CouchSurfing days are behind me, as far as I can tell, and I am taking much pleasure in a bit of comfort here and then, in familiar surroundings.
hot chocolate. Sugar & Spice Hot Chocolate, to be exact.
Let's face it- the night can always get better, and here is the perfect recipe!
Zimt Sugar & Spice Hot Chocolate
2 C hemp or almond mylk (I made hemp mylk by blending about 2 cups of purified water with 1/4
cup hemp seeds- tastes a bit peanut-buttery to be honest. Try it with coconut milk!)
2 T maple syrup
|1 - 2 Sugar & Spice bar(s) - if you use 2, it will be a seriously rich treat. Yum!|
|In your Vitamix... |
|1-2 bars of Sugar & Spice|
|Canadian Liquid Gold....|
|Somebody is tired- but that's ok!|
Have you got a high speed blender, like a Vitamix? No better time to use it than now! Combine all ingredients on high until they warm up- should take about 2 minutes.
I haven't tried this one, but here's an alternative for those who don't have current access to such culinary luxuries.
Heat up hemp or almond mylk in a small pan, add your maple syrup, and whisk. Break up one Sugar & Spice bar and let it melt in! Whisk it up to emulsify.
Pour into two nice mugs and share with somebody special! (Somebody special can include you- you're special).
Here's a Zimt update:
Expansion, I think... is going to go like this:
Organic Certification (check!)
New packaging.... soon! My designer sent me lots of beautiful proofs.
Approach distributor with finished product
... bring Zimt to the world!!!!
How does that all sound?
Happy Tuesday Eve,
