This is the perfect, all-natural drink to warm you up on a cold day
- Yields: 6-7 Glasses.
Soak cashews and pitted date in a bowl of water for at least 1 hour, preferable overnight. After soaking, drain and rinse well.
Place cashews and date into a blender along with the water, sweetener, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Blend on the highest speed until super smooth.
Transfer to a medium pot and add the chocolate. Heat until the chocolate is melted and it's hot enough to your liking. It will thicken up a bit. Stir to combine. Be careful not to burn the bottom. Remove pot from heat.
Serve & enjoy with some shaved chocolate on top.
Store leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top. You can also enjoy this chilled!
This hot cocoa thickens up substantially as it sits. Feel free to thin it out a bit with a splash of almond milk or water.
