I remember while growing up in Wisconsin and on cool autumn days drinking hot chocolate. It was heaven on earth! You’d feel the cooler weather and warm your soul up with some hot chocolate. In those days the hot chocolate was there to warm & entertain you.
Now that I have grown up a bit, I look fondly on warming my soul with hot chocolate. I just prefer to enjoy a sugar-free version now. Whenever I get the craving for hot chocolate, I whip up a drink that nourishes while energizing and grounding at the same time. With the cooler weather rolling in, I figured I’d add a little bit of pumpkin spice to the hot chocolate and reminisce over the changing of the seasons.
To make this pumpkin spiced hot chocolate, I used spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. This will ensure the integrity of my spices and make a delicious and invigorating drink. When creating this drink, I recommend buying the bulk of the spices and mixing them together in a larger quantity so you have them on hand through out the season.
