Raw, Vegan Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate

Raw, Vegan Chai Spiced Hot Chocolate

The texture of this hot chocolate is a bit thick due to the cacao nibs and the dates. For that reason, it reminds me a whole lot of the super-rich, upscale hot chocolates—the kind that are practically melted chocolate in a glass—that you’ll sometimes find at fine chocolatiers. Except this one is made with only […]

Hummus is such a mainstay in a healthy kitchen. It makes the perfect easy dip for crudités and crackers and even a […]
