Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
Oh the weather outside is frightful … but the oils are so delightful …
Go outside to play in the snow, then come inside and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa – and add a drop of cinnamon or cassia to it!
You can use a cocoa mix (I’m very partial to the 365 Organic mix from Whole Foods) or you can mix 1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup sugar, a dash of salt and 1/3 cup hot water and cook on the stove until hot, then add 4 cups of milk. Stir in vanilla if desired, and a drop of cinnamon or cassia (you could also use peppermint and experiment with wild orange!)
You can also add a single drop of cinnamon or cassia to homemade whipped cream (throw half a cup or so of whipping cream, a spoonful or two of sugar, and a drop of EO into the kitchenaid and let it whip!).
You’ll love the flavor AND you’ll love that it helps to keep your blood sugar stable, keeps germs at bay, soothes your tummy, and naturally stimulates you and perks you up!
NOTE: You can ONLY use dōTERRA brand essential oils for this. No other brand is safe for internal usage.
