Breakfast Cocoa

The idea of having cocoa with breakfast has always seemed, well, weird to me. Too sugary for the morning (though sugar in the afternoon is just fine!). I don't like to put much syrup on my pancakes, and am perfectly happy to skip the sugar and just have cinnamon toast, so hot cocoa with breakfast was out of the question.


I realized that it is possible to make cocoa that is not wildly sweet. You just heat up a mug of milk for a minute and thirty seconds in the microwave, and while it's heating mix about a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder with around a teaspoon of honey, and a bit a cream. Stir that into the hot milk, and you have breakfast cocoa! It goes well with just about everything, and doesn't send you on a sugar high. What do you like to drink with breakfast?

  1. Looks good! I actually had a hot chocolate/ coffee drink for breakfast earlier this week. Samuel makes really good mochas, so I tried to use all the ingredients I see him use in his(coffee, almond milk, cocoa, maybe something else), but it didn't turn out quite right. It was still good, though. Your recipe sounds tasty, too.
