Tahini Hot Chocolate
Tahini Hot Chocolate is a thick, comforting, hot drink with a truly underrated flavour combination: tahini and chocolate. Tahini is a unique flavour that’s often used like peanut butter and has a bitter taste similar to chocolate so it works well in balance with the sweet ingredients.
- 1 cup whole milk or non-dairy milk of choice
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 tsp maple syrup
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 tbsp tahini well stirred
Warm a cup of milk in a saucepan over medium low heat.
Whisk in unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt.
Once all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the milk is the perfect drinking temperature, add tahini and stir for another 30 seconds.
Strain the drink as you pour it into your favourite mug.
Optional: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon on the top of your drink is optional but delicious.
I recommend straining homemade chocolate before serving to make sure your drink is really smooth with no clumps of cocoa powder.
I recommend adding the tahini at the end just to ensure you don’t overheat it
