Is it just me or is the outside world turning further and further into an apocalyptic scenario of Mad Max, with a hurricane Ciara blowing across the UK and the Corona Virus reported cases rising every day?
Being a rational citizen that I am, I realize that the doomsday clock is ever so close to midnight while the Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Seeing how this may be the only opportunity that I got, I have decided to share yet another recipe in order to stay at home and pamper myself in a hygge style.
If like me you don’t like be cold temperature I believe this can be a good recipe for a great evening. Today I have for you a heavenly fragrant, colonial adventure filled with silky sweetness. Have you ever heard of what datelate is? If you haven’t than now it’s the time to challenge yourself and try something new in your life! Now more than ever! So run! Run to your kitchen or nearest store for the necessary products. Believe me, you do not want to wait any longer to try this excellent chocolate which has also so much healthy benefits for you!
So to get started … what we need is your favorite vegetable milk, dates, cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
Our Precise measurements are:
2 glass of plant milk
6 large sun-dried dates
2 tablespoons bitter cocoa
a pinch of sea salt
a pinch of cinnamon
Optionally, chocolate shavings, whipped cream or whatever you like.
Pour the milk into a saucepan with a thick bottom along with the other ingredients and heat on low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Take the drink off the heat and let it cool down a bit.
Pour this into the blender cup and mix until the texture is silky.
Now light your favorite candle, turn on the music and enjoy the best home winter-valentine experience ever.
What a fun drink. I love finding new recipes to jazz up classics like cocoa!

This sounds so comforting and delicious! We are having a pretty bad weather these days in Switzerland as well, I will be trying your recipe soon!
I know that the weather in Switzerland can be harsh because in childhood I read Heidi;)
On the other hand, this country is so associated with luxury and cozy ski resorts:)
It all sounds delicious. When the going gets rough, eat dessert. 🙂
Thank you Elizabeth. This is the secret power of desserts 🙂
