this post is so NOT timely (hot cocoa in JUNE?!)

Nobody really wants to read a healthy hot cocoa recipe in June, huh. I’ll have more appropriate spring garden recipes for you Sunday.

But I went for a bike ride at 7:45 p.m. up the canyon. My friend Jennie kept griping about the next steep hill: “I thought you said this was the last one!” It’s my favorite ride, 10 miles up and 10 miles back, so beautiful it takes my breath away.

Somehow I didn’t think about how cold it would be, in my t-shirt and shorts, flying down the canyon at 35 mph. I was so frozen when I got to the bottom that I raced home, made this hot cocoa, and got in a steaming hot bath with it:


1 cup hot water

2 Tbsp. coconut palm sugar

1 heaping Tbsp. non-alkalized unsweetened cocoa

1 heaping Tbsp. coconut milk powder

¼ tsp. butterscotch flavoring (Frontier brand, no alcohol)

Whiz all in the blender, pour into a mug, and enjoy!

  1. Hey Robyn,

    I have enjoyed your blog and ordered a BlenTech! The smoothies are great and I now want to get a bigger container for the blender. yesterday I paid $39.95 for a digital download of the 12 steps and I can’t find it today. They sent it to my email and I fell asleep reading it last night.. however, today I can’t find it! I don’t know what happened to it.. Is it possible for them to send it again?

  2. Heck, I’m in Texas and I was craving hot cocoa last night…lol! Btw, I think you should plan a trip to Texas and you should come to our Raw food group meetups! There is one in San Antonio, one in San Marcos, and a zillion in Austin! You are welcome to stay with us when you come! Let’s make arrangements! The Texans are “starving to fatness” help!
