Sweet & Spicy Moroccan Hot Chocolate moroccan hot chocolate

Let me start off by admitting two of my major addictions. 1. I love coffee and I’m addicted 2. I love chocolate and I’m addicted. Lately I’ve been trying to cut down my coffee consumption by drinking more herbal tea, and… feeding my other addiction, chocolate.

Making your own hot chocolate can be a “healthier” alternative and can spice things up from the normal hot chocolate. This recipe will sure do so! I’ve created the yummiest combination of sweet and spicy with this Moroccan hot chocolate where you wont have to worry too much about the calories.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 4 tbsp of agave nectar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper
  • 1 square semi-sweet bakers chocolate (if desired)
  • cinnamon sticks (if desired)
  • whipped cream (if desired)
  • orange zest (if desired)


Bring milk to a simmer.  Add agave, and stir through.  Slowly, while stirring add cocoa powder, cinnamon, cardamom, and chili powder. Turn down to a low heat, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes until the ingredients blend together. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.  Serve; garnish with cinnamon sticks, whipped cream, semi-sweet chocolate shavings and zest of orange peel, if desired.

Bon Apetite!
