Ingredients

  • 350g full-fat milk

  • 50g water

  • 4 Tbsp good quality cocoa powder

  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar

  • a small stick of cinnamon

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 3 green cardamom (crushed)

  • 100g of dark chocolate (chopped/broken into chunks)

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • pinch of sea salt

Directions

  • In a pot mix the milk, water, sugar and spices (crush and dehusk the cardamom, adding only the seeds), and gently heat over low to medium heat until just below boiling.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the cocoa powder, and vanilla. Return to low heat for 1 minute stirring constantly.
  • Remove from the heat and discard the cinnamon and bay. Next, add in the dark chocolate (you can use anything from 55% to 80% for this depending on taste) and stir off the heat until melted. Finish with a small pinch of sea salt.
  • Emulsify with a handheld blender and divide into 2 mugs. Top with whipped double cream and a grating of dark chocolate.
