  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

    2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips

    2 tablespoons Frontier Co-op Cocoa Powder

    2 tablespoons honey

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Vanilla Extract

    1/8 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Cayenne Chili Pepper

    1/8 teaspoon sea salt

    1 cinnamon stick 



    1. Combine milk and chocolate chips, then heat in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes on high or on the stovetop until they reach a boil. Stir frequently to avoid burning the chocolate.
